I feel like I've been working on this dress forever.
It's only been 10 days since I had the idea for this dress.
Thanks again for all your voting on the sleeves vs no sleeves issue.
I decided, sleeveless, collarless, but YES YES YES to piping.
Which I made myself for the very first time today.
Ok, so here's where it's at now.
What's left to do?
The hem is horrible. I will be ripping that out tmw night. and rehemming. And I need to iron the CB seam. and maybe fix the piping on the sleeves so that they are the same width? The piping on the left armhole is not as wide as the piping on the right armhole. I used the same cording so I must not have sewn as closely with my zipper foot on the right armhole. You can see too the left armhole got a little stretched out....
Here's a closeup of the neckline.
My very own homemade piping:
More gory details later.
For now it's time for bed!
Great idea about using the piping.ReplyDelete
The piping looks so profesh!ReplyDelete
If you take the piping out add a strip of tricot fusible to the armhole, that will stop the stretching when you add the piping back in.ReplyDelete
BTW, I really like the dress collarless, sleeveless and with the piping! Great job!
