I’ve always wanted to make this Danielle dress : it’s the first pattern I got from burdastyle, and I love it. But I never found the right fabric… Until a month a go, I came across that lovely… something… (I don’t know any name of material, sorry! )
I was afraid it would look like an apron (vertical stripes…), but it doesn’t! The shape is very feminine, and the closure is a little low, but not too much : I can still wear it anywhere.
I used one stripe from the material for the belt, because I thought plain black would look too sharp. And of course I added pockets :D this is the best part of sewing dresses and skirts ^^
I used this sticky tape for the facing, and it’s fantastic ! It stays totally in place, I don’t know why I never thought of it before !
Invisible zipper, thing for sticky hems.
