As my fabric is totally different from what it was needed to be, I had to improvise.
First of all, it was see-through, so i had to use lining, which ended up being a good thing, as the dress does not just fall, it actually has some body to it.
Second of all, I did not follow the instructions (or did I? I didn’t read them in the first place), as I am thinking of making sewing more than just a hobby, I am taking all the opportunities to be creative.
Though the fabric I used is lighter than flannel (used in the original project), because of amount of it and because I used lining, it still pulls on the yoke. It’s not that bad, really, when it’s on, it’s hard to notice. anyway.
Bottom edge of the dress is neatened up with closely spaced zigzag stitching.
