I saw a dress like this in the shops and didnt think it would be TOO hard to recreate… i had this pretty material already and then i traced a singlet i had but made it extra wide and a bit longer
With recommendation by googlie, i used the french seam – http://www.burdastyle.com/techniques/sew-french-seams-and-why- – and i really liked the effect of it! very neat :)
the thing about my garments is that they LOOK decent enough, but the quality isnt as great so im trying to work on that
