1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Trouble with Lace-Up back dress on: January 31, 2011 07:10:16 PM
Hi all!

A friend of mine is the president of the Harry Potter club at my college, she is hosting a "Yule Ball", and we have decided to make our own dresses. I am using this pattern: Vogue 2890 http://cdn1.iofferphoto.com/img/item/148/239/419/GLYN.jpg <<--for the image.

This is my first clothing sewing project (I've made 5 quilts, and various other little things)
So i got to the zipper, invisible zipper down the side. but I think the interfacing was too thick, because it would not zip. (I resewed it 3 times, and wouldnt go)

So I decided to sew up the side, and i cut open the back, put in loops down the back (they all touched each other, no space in between), the only trouble is when i lace it up, all the ribbon bunches up in the middle rather than neatly lacing like it should. Any ideas on how to fix this. A friend of mine mentioned buttons, but my mom said it might look too costumey.

The biggest issue is that the ball is this saturday 2/5...and i cant sew on the bottom of the dress or the flowers down the front, before I finish the rest of this bodice!   Thanks in advance! Smiley
