Carrboro, North ...
Made just the top portion of this dress. http://www.burdastyle.com/pattern_store/patterns/mock-two-piece-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.
Stretchy denim. I couldn’t tell right side, light gray? So I reversed it to make the underarm panels.
