The dress is done! What do you think?
I like it. It still needs pressing. I was just so excited to get pictures taken while the sun was out. (Then we took some indoors too. Hence, the change in shoes and hose.)
The hem was a nightmare. I used my sewing machine with twin needles. Everything that could go wrong did. Bobbin thread ran out, threaded one of the needles incorrectly. I’m not thrilled with the hem but I’m living with it for now. The sleeves are still very tight. (Hubby thinks they look like sleeve tattoos.) But I’m going to see how they are with a full wearing.
All in all I love the fabric, colour and print, and, I like the neckline and gathered knot in the front. I won’t make this again, I don’t think, because it really is a lot of work for a so-so style. Personally I think the fabric makes the dress. If this was a dull fabric the whole dress would be a no-go…in my opinion.
I’d love to hear your opinion!
