|Oh so comfortable is this dress!|
Imagine my delight when I found this piece on clearance. Of course it was down to the end of the bolt. I think I managed to get "end of bolt" price on about ten inches or so. The colors are rich and deep and I love that about it!
|Skirt front, back and bodice back are all cut on the fold of fabric|
I imagined this fabric for the top shown as View D but the closer I got to starting the project, I realized that quite a bit of fabric would be wasted so the top quickly became a "not an option" project.
|Worked careful to get the placement of the print just right!|
I really like the simplicity of the top and kept imagining it paired with the print of this fabric. What to do....what to do? Simple fix. I decided to add about eight inches to the hemline of the top and make it a dress and it worked!
|A little "Flower Power"|
Although it worked out pretty okay, I ended up with two rows of stitching, side by side, on the inside of the garment which I am not crazy about. It was an interesting learning process for me. The elastic in the waist is encased in a 5/8 " seam with a serged finish.
