Supplement #295 Winter
very stretchy lace patterned black knit with a nap
black lining material
black invisible zipper
No seam allowances taken...stretchy fabric, non knit pattern
knits as stretchy as this need hand basting,
princess line from the arm scye to the hip, the zipper
and the sleeve all were basted
It saved the dress!
I basted where the tiny pins are
on the photo
I made the neck facing wider so it would sew into
the arm scye and the princess line. It should give me
no problem with is being larger, and it will make that neck area more stable
I use scissors designed for cutting knits, they have little ridges to hold
the fabric from slipping. I love these Scissors!
I made the sleeves a tiny bit longer but may remove
that if I don't like them this long
my fabric has a very busy design.
I left out the back vent also, it just isn't needed
with such stretchy fabric
I can't seem to keep the neck line from
flipping open into a V.
I am going to redo the facing
heavier knit interfacing maybe
to hold the neckline better.
I didn't need the zipper...I should have
guessed with this stretchy fabric!
The dress fits perfectly!
Now on to some clothes for the new year!
