Mod Stretchy Denim top

Added Jun 7, 2013

Carrboro, North ...






Made just the top portion of this dress. Left the raw edge on the hem. Finished the sleeve hems with narrow, small zig zag, this helped them curl slightly for a similar unfinished edge. The neckline was handsewn with a blind stitch, I just couldn’t figure out if I wanted to bind it or make a facing (too bulky). The hardest part was getting the side panel and underarm panels to meet up perfectly at the armpit corners.

Material Notes

Stretchy denim. I couldn’t tell right side, light gray? So I reversed it to make the underarm panels.
