Dress with v-neck and gathers. I used a multi-directional stretch knit. Not recommended. It was all over the place when I was trying to do the gathers. I think I sewed, ripped, and re-sewed every seam! Doing a hem is nearly impossible with this fabric…maybe I’ll just cut it real straight :-)

    Looks great! A really nice desing and a choice of fabrics (I mean the colours ;)) Did you use a pattern for this one?

    Great dress, I love the color combo and the style. It’s very flattering. Multi stretch fabric can be a pain, but at least it’s very comfy. Again great job it looks beautiful! :)

    i think the gathering works well, and the fit is great around the bust and hips, definitly a good idea for me to cover my tummy for next time! =)
