I’m completely new here, and pretty new to sewing, too, so I hope you can help me out.
I decided to make the wrap dress from the title (sorry, I and urls apparently don’t agree).
But after all the time spent for comprehending the instructions, I find myself asking the same thing one of the users already asked in reviews for this dress. Why cut out two rectangles that you’re going to sew together anyway if you actually have more than enough fabric to leave it in one piece? Can’t you just make the dress, with or without print on jersey, without cutting it in two?
The only reason I could possibly come up with was the draping of the fabric, but it’s a simple summer jersey dress, so it doesn’t sound like too much of a reason.
The question in reviews was never answered, so I’m posting it here. Sorry if the question sounds kinda stupid, but then I rather ask. :)
