If you'll notice, the pattern runs vertical on the bodice but horizontal on the skirt except for a front panel. Does anyone know what that's called? I've seen several vintage dresses and thought I'd try it on this dress, although it turned out extremely subtle.

I think its called cutting on the bias or a bias cut. Don't quote me on that though. Nice dress by the way!

If the pattern is laid in a 45 angle, then its bias cut. Its used for adding a better fitting and 'flow' to skirts usually (and I guess it only works with knit fabrics, because of their construction). Mme Voinnet was the pioneer on that Wink

And I do love the dress. <3 Vintage clothes
