This is the muslin I made of the Twisted Bubble Dress to work it all out before I make three more for bridesmaid dresses. The pattern instructions aren’t that clear and I couldn’t workout how the over dress attached to the lining at bottom, so I did what everyone else has done when making this dress, my own thing :) I twisted the dress (aligning the right dress seam with the left lining seam) and then gathered the Chiffon evenly across the hemline and have ended up with a seam underneath that will not been seen when the chiffon bubbles overs (I will cover the seam with binding just to neaten and add a little more weight to bottom of the dress. all in all it has turned out very nicely … the bride is very happy with it … phew!
As the dress is made from Chiffon when attaching the lining and the dress I had to reverse the lining so the right side of the dress and the wrong side of the lining were facing when sewn because the right side of the lining needed to face out so the seams wouldn’t show through the Chiffon.
