I made the Jamie Shift Dress in Alabama Chanin Style, painted, stenciled, hand sewn and hand beaded.
I omitted the facings and instead used a double layer of jersey fabric; blue for the top and cream underneath. I also omitted the back zipper and instead used a six inch slit and hook and eye closure.
The top fabric was painted with the Angie’s Fall stencil and hand stitched using running and reverse back stitches leaving the thread tails and knots visible on the right side of the fabric. I then hand beaded sequins and seed beads inside the shapes.
The dress hand sewn with button/craft thread in slate. The seams are flat- felled to the wrong side.
