Retro-style dress made unique with funky gathering. You can read all about it on my blog Jorth!
Also, for those who wanted to know about the gathering, I made the skirt with a full skirt. Once the dress was fully completed, I gathered up sections of fabric to create fanned folds, then sewed these together on the wrong side, so no stitching could be seen on the right side. Using this method means that you may end up stitching through three or four layers of fabric. I did this in random places until I felt the skirt looked ‘right’.
