I have been diligently working on a dress, but I will be wearing as a top, ummm a short dress/ top and these thighs= no bueno! I've been working on V8968, which is labeled very easy by Vogue.. This is a very easy dress in theory; however, the dang facing for the hem gave me the blues... I have yet to slip- stitch the hem facing in place as per the instructions (that hand sewing will get you every time:).
|The fabric I purchased last year some time|
on Fabric.com, which is some type of poly
Whenever I tried to get the facing pinned to the hem band the fabric started shifting and would not lie flat, almost as if the facing should have been reduced a bit.. I don't know, maybe it was me... I still need to hand sew the facing in place, as well as attach the neck facing. I was going to opt to do a binding, but preferred not to see the stitching from sewing on a binding, where as a facing I could just tack to the shoulder seams... I am hoping to get finished by the weekend. I'm moving slower, but I'm actually enjoying the pace.. As always y'all Be blessed and nothin' less and continue to stay fearlessly fierce!
