Complicating a simple pattern
So dress upper and lower pieces are attached. I found two great invisible zippers to use and have to decide to go with the lavender or stay with the beige, the same as the dress background.
I learned from the fitting session that I may need to take deeper seams at the waist area down to hem.
The dress calls for armhole facings which I have cut out and fused with interfacing. I may decide to use bias tape instead. So next steps are:
- Insert invisible zipper
- Sew side seams
- Attach armhole facings or bias tape
I really like the look of the dress and there is a part of me that wishes I had just eliminated the embellished waist insert. I probably would have a completed dress now. Yet this is why I sew to design and make garments my way! Later.
