Description

I’ve been into sewing jersey dresses and shirts lately, and experimenting with fabric band finishes around the neckline and arms. I thought this little number looked very cruise-ship appropriate, but the men on my street had different ideas. More on my blog Daughter Fish

    Beautiful job! How to you finish your neck and arm openings? I have a jersey dress I’m working on now and can never figure it out.

      Hi! I finish my arms and neckline with thin, folded fabric bands. I have a post about this on my blog (http://daughterfish.com/?p=3160), and there’s a link to a great Threads article about fabric bands in that post. Good luck!:)

      Make it a kitten call. I’m more receptive to that on the street!:)

    Awesome job! Looks fantastic on you. How do you get the seams so neat? Mine always seem to pucker.

      Do you get puckering on all the seams, or just on your finished edges? I find puckering usually happens when I stretch the fabric too much, either on my serger or regular machine. I actually started finishing my arm, neckline,and hem edges with fabric bands, rather than using a double needle, to avoid the dreaded pucker!
