1  CLOTHING / Clothing Sewalongs / Re: quickie dress that anybody can make on: July 26, 2006 08:44:28 PM
Here's mine
Finding the fabric took 5 stores because none of them carried knits. I finally found a grey stretch fabric for only 2 dollars a yard. The cutting was actually easier than I though but sewing it was a pain because the fabric kept stretching. But it looks fantastic right now. I can't wait to make another one.
how did you make the skirt?
It's almost identical to a circle skirt, except instead of cutting it into a circle, I left it as a square.

I dig your jagged hem...I wanted to do this on mine, but the fabric wasn't right for it.  OH WELL, I guess I'll have to make another one!   Wink

How thick is this fabric?  Mine was 100% polyester, and pretty opaque (didn't even need a slip in the sunshine)...I wonder if the thinner fabric (although harder to sew, it seems) is the reason you get a skinnier/more elegant tie?  Any thoughts on this anyone?
It's much thinner than swimsuit weight fabric, but not as thin as the swimsuit lining fabric probably somewhere between the two. Mine's opaque too, but even though I did two layers on the top part of the strap, it still would have needed a bra, although, I'm pretty small and the dress is tight enough, so the cups from a swimsuit can be slipped in for modesty and still stay put without sewing them in. I think the reason my tie is skinnier is because my straps themselves are thinner, also I tapered the ends of the ties.
The jagged hem is actually much easier because it's just a square.
