Why “Miracle”? Because it’s a miracle that this dress not only turned out wearable, but I even like it a lot! On my quest to becoming a better seamstress, I encountered way too many difficulties in one single project.
To list a few: It’s a pattern from 1941 with very little instruction; it was two sizes bigger than I needed it; I chose different fabric than suggested, one being stretchy, the other very light and basically not manageable by machine at all… I had to roll-seam the entire dress (hem, arms, neckline) by hand… I ran out of both fabrics in the end….
The dress has a built-in tank top and is super comfortable. I also like the built-in underskirt. If the wind catches the super light material, I’m still not standing there naked…
Sales-bin stuff from my stash… one very stretchy, one very light (and stretchy in one direction)
