I’ve started on a simplified version of dress #12105. The striped fabric is a very soft & lightweight wool, the brown fabric is silk. As with the previous version of the dress, I’ve flatlined the striped fabric to increase stability. These photos show major construction complete, but there is still much to do:
As you’ll notice, the skirt pieces are only pin-basted. Since they’re cut on the bias, I’m letting them hang for a couple days to let the bias relax, then I’ll remove them, lay back over pattern piece & trim as needed.
Back to work!
