As with my previous postings about making a coat, I will write about this in stages, explaining the challenges I had and how I solved them – hoping it will help other seamstresses who aim for perfection like me!
I thought the pattern (Vogue) would be great for some wonderful silk jersey with a striking rose pattern that I had in my store.
The fabric I fell in love with – yes, following the given pattern placement will not work!
In terms of turning this material into the dress I dream of there are (at least!) two challenges; sewing this beautiful ‘drapey’ material so the seams are perfect and placing the design to best advantage.
