Anywho - the dress! The one thing I thought was going to happen was that I was going to run out of bias binding tape (and we all know that took me yonkers to make) but I had the perfect amount! About 2inches to spare even! Ha!And I think it turned out pretty darn good... I may never go back to store brought bias binding again!
And finally, I present to you, the Navy Dress - finished!
It's stretchy so it didn't need a zip, I added the front 'toggles' (as mum called them) for something different and it feels great. The only problem with it is my body's jiggly bits! Nothing like a spare tyre to ruin a good dress, but I'm gonna wear it anyways.
1. Ironing is my bestie.
2. One must iron.
3. How good do things look ironed?!
4. Homemade bias binding - doesn't matter what it looks like on the inside it's the awesome way it looks finished that's important.
Note: Practice stitching in the ditch.
aaah.... feels good to be finished, now to find a nice chiffon dress to copy for some awesome fabric I brought.
