I love this dress, but man it was difficult to make... First, the fabric is so light that its hard to align the sides to mark the pattern, to cut even is hard to.. I had to pin it to the bed so it wont move and i could mark the cutting lines. and second, wow, I have no idea how to sew bias, like what to do in the corners or in this case in a V neck. Please if somebody can help me I will really appreciate it.



I really liked the shape, and the detail of the orange bias.

i love personal swaps. i'm looking to swap my art or paper crafts for some re-usable fabric snack bags, fabric sandwich wraps, fabric paper towels, glass pendants, ephemera, or art books.

I love it- I have some BUSY printed sarees that I have been trying to figure out what to do with, and this looks so nice and clean.
