It’s still quite hot and I’m sure summer ended at the end of February. Yet it’s still stiflingly humid. Training in the morning outside before the sun comes up (yes I know that’s crazy anyway), the humidity is so heavy even the mozzies are weighed down.
|More leg that I bargained for 🙂|
And no, I won’t be putting my hands on my hips – point taken.
Overnight my skirt grew by 5cm. Isn’t that a neat trick.
The skirt join has gathers and I’ve used pleats to flatten the look.
This dress is a cinch to cut and finish in an afternoon.
I’ve kept back hem is slightly lower than the front. It’s just a ‘thing’ I do. Not fashion.
I spliced the centre front of the bodice to practice using the print to form a v-shape.
And that’s how simple this dress is to work with.
Beth of SunnyGal Studio Sewing made a Vogue knit dress last week (great work as always) and she links to a Threads video on applying neck binding. I’ll be using this technique next time.
