When I bought this fabric I didn’t imagine it would end up as a dress. I had a waistcoat type thing in mind. But for some reason when I pulled it out three days ago, I couldn’t see it being anything other than a dress! I had some left over shirting fabric from a previous shirt I’d worked on and just went with it.
The button closure on the shoulders were totally unplanned. I sewed the neck and armhole and I couldn’t turn it My God! It was a nightmare. I don’t know what I did, or didn’t do. But I nearly went crazy trying to turn it. After spending more than three hours trying to figure it out I gave up and decided to have a closure there instead using the wooden buttons I had initially planned for the waistcoat.
The bodice is fully lined with polycotton. Same stuff the ruffles are made of.
Being a medium weight fabric the appliques sit so well without it collapsing inward.
I love it!
Olive suiting, cotton shirting and polycotton fabric. Wooden buttons.
