Description

I made this party dress for a summertime outdoor wedding last weekend. I started with McCall’s 5881 “diystyle” dress pattern and added a fagoting stitch detail to adorn the hemline. This is a comfy dress for a hot day, but perhaps the most fun was had on the previous Friday night spent fagoting!

More about the dress and stitching a fagoted seam on my blog,
