I finally completed a Burdastyle pattern though I’ve been a member for years. I decided to try the Anda dress but without the elastic waist after seeing so many great variations. I had no problem until it got to the hem. My fabric was not suitable and stretched out of shape. Also, hemming a dress this wide, you have to allow for the hem to always look off because the sides will drop lower than the middle unless you cut it in a upward curve. I chose not to do this and love it just the same. I will definitely make this again in a more suitable fabric.
I used a mystery fabric from my late mother’s stash. Very slippery and stretched all out of shape at the hem.
