    I really love he overall looks of the dress, but..

    the neckline binding bugs me very much. does it stand up like that on purpose? If it was my project i would have ripped it out and resewn it to lay flat. Maybe you don’t have to redo it and it’s just a matter of a good press. Now it just looks like that the wonderful properties of bias are not used and it stands just like an on-grain binding would.

      The binding is fine, it’s the lace that makes it stand out, since it doesn’t stretch. It was a matter of lace or no lace, so I chose the lace.
