I’m officially in love with this pattern. This is like the easiest sewing I’ve ever done, sew the straps – sew the bindings – sew the sides of dress, and within half an hour I got a pretty and comfortable dress.
The fabric is double-gauze knit with stars pattern. I love that is double layered so nothing see through here.
For the bindings, I cut 2.5 cm-wide strips pf fabric, and attached them using overlocker, pulling them a bit while sewing. I didn’t fold the fabric strips like I did for my first Mission Maxi because I wanted the raw edge to show. Since the fabric is double-layered, the white inner layer is peeking through a bit.
The bindings are then topstitched using sewing machine set on zigzag stitch, 0.5 in width and 3 in length. I could have use the coverstitch function on my overlocker to do this, but I was too lazy to change the settings and the needles. The hem is left intentionally raw to let the white inner layer peek through.
