I think the dress looks fab. You did a really good job.
Did you do it like we said, with the pieces crossing over?

Good job! It's not bad at all, though I suppose it may have looked better if you used a less crisp fabric, like georgette instead, then line it...

Hey, I would definitely wear that!! You look amazing. Actually, I think I am going to make it - did you stick to your original design? What would you have done differently? What in particular don't you like?

Sorry for the questions but I'm imagining me in this at the next cocktail party Grin

the only problem i have is that my sewing machine just won't let me sew the bottom hem of the dress without making it bunch up, so it hangs oddly.  i did change my design a little bit -i lined the top part and added cups, and i didn't use 2 pieces for the bottom -i used 1 and sewed i diagonal line from the back to the bottom of the dress (am i making sense?), so that it would allow me to put it on without using azipper.  other than the hem line, it turned out well i guess. i'm going to keep  working on the hem line, does anyone have any  suggestions? i've tried using the rolled hem foot on  my sewing machine, but it hasn't worked (like i said before, it makes it bunch up). i've also tried adjusting the tension, etc. i think when i have time ill pin it up myself and straight sew it, and see if that works.
thanks guys! Cheesy

I love that dress!  Yours turned out great!

I understand the hem dilemma, though.  Ugh!  I have the same problems!  I think the rolled hem foot only works if you are sewing a straight hem and have buttloads of patients (or you are sewing a round hem and have 2 buttloads of patients).  Often I am sewing skirt hems and I never have the required patients.  Thus = much disaster.

You might try a blind hem (have you got that foot?), but I fight w/ that as well because mine either end up being totally visible or not hemmed at all.  My ultimate solution was reverting to hand sewing.  And we all know how lame that is when you have a perfectly good sewing machine that should just do it for you!

I love garment sewing, but I always dread the hemming.  Keep us posted on how it's going!
