My daughter has a habit of sending me photos of dresses etc and asking can i make them or she’ll give me something to copy. This dress she gave me is one of her favourite’s so i set about copying it for her. This was the first time i used my binder maker and although its not perfect i was so pleased with it. I nornally just cut strips of fabric stitch them to the armhole or neck then double fold and stitch again!! I needed something like proper binding this time though as the binding’s extend to the straps. I’m now in love with my binding maker and my daughter was delighted with the dress.The origonal dress cost £40 and mine was £4 x
