Description

This dress I sewed for my girlfriend again.
The fabric was difficult to process.
I guess it’s a slinky. In the back I made the pattern form-fitting.

    Great work! I have trouble with slinky/slippery fabrics too. I try to avoid them but sometimes you just see something really cool and you have to try.

      You can start with small things and slowly grow into it.

    great work! i love this pattern. making it more fitting in the back was a good idea. i usually have to do that too, otherwise everything gapes.

      that’s not me, that’s my girlfriend and she lives 9000km away from me.
      I do not really know about your financial options. She lives in Kazakhstan.

      Thank you!
      This fabric is heavy jersey too!
      I guess it is a slinky.
      BUT…I recommend only non-elastic materials for the model!!!! my opinion after the work.
