My last project with my old machine. This fabric had no drape, so the dress seemed to hang oddly, although it may have softened after a few washes and wears. However, I was really pleased with the finish of the garment, the entire bodice and facing has been done enclosed, so that there are no loose edges. I loved that!
Despite the funny fabric, I liked this pattern and will definitely give this dress another go.
Apologies for the “distant” photos, Himself took them for me as I was in a hurry and didn’t want to take the time to set up the auto feature.
