fabric store . I would like to show it on because I feel it looks best that way but I am to modest to wear it in a photo for all of you so the hanger is the best I have for now. A dress form would be nice for this.
|Tiny French Seam|
I completed the straps and pinned them on for a fitting still feeling pretty good about the project.
The fitting did not go well, I didn't realize how much the fit would change using the drapey bias fabric. It was too large along the top and sides. I had to unpick carefully all of my beautiful stitches and take in the side seams even more. The other things that I struggled with was the bias tape on the top to finish the edges weighed down the fabric and caused it to be droopy. I started again with a thinner strip hoping that would fix the droopy top. I have fidgeted with this slip for 3 days now and decided that I will live with it the way it is. It feels dreamy and looks pretty but I should have cut a smaller size to match my high bust measurement. Then I would have had a better fit through the chest and shoulders I will attempt another one next week as a gift for a friend and soon to be family member who is getting married in a few weeks. The bride to be is my size so I will redraft the pattern in a smaller size and see how it turns out. While my slip wasn't as dreamy as I had imagined it turned out well enough and will serve its purpose for wearing under my Liberty Lawn Shirtwaist Dress.
