This is my second make of this shift dress using pattern number 763 from Angela Kane
I added a self-drafted Peter Pan Collar. I used Gertie’s brilliant You Tube tutorials and Jamie Lau’s tutorial which I have linked below.
The dress is fully lined and I experimented with a nice hem finish. I used twill tape on the raw edge of the hem and then blind hem stitched as normal.
I used jade linen and blue jersey knit for the collar.
Linen, satin lining and jersey knit for the collar.
