The Moddern sewing pattern, that I previously used for my White dress with purple piping.
I really like this pattern, and ever since I made the white dress, I’ve been thinking about making few more variations. I wanted to accentuate the crossed lines with contrasting colors, and when I found this double faced fabric, I knew I had to give it a try. The dress is made from 20 pieces, most of them with curvy, concave or convex shape, so I felt like I was building a puzzle while sewing it. Add to that the checkered pattern I tried to match on all these pieces, and you’ll get the idea of the amount of work it took. I didn’t manage to match all the check lines, but I think I did a good job in the end.
The front keyhole, neckline and armscyes are finished with navy cotton bias band. I was thinking about making bias band out of the fashion fabric, but then I thought it would be too much. So, I opted for the easier solution.
Double faced viscose.
