New Skills accomplished.:
1. All in one Facing
2. Underlining a Dress with silk organza
4. Lapped Hand Picked Zipper (Probably my personal favorite skill...I may use this for all my zippers)
Since I already own the book with the pattern and have used it here Skirted Playsuit and Here Shirtwaist Dress so I have decided I will not add the cost into the total.
Fabric: Silk Duchess Satin (60" wide) from Mood Fabrics $50/ yard purchased 1 1/2 yard plus enough other fabric to qualify for free shipping. I had very little left over so I need to be sure I make no mistakes.
Silk Organza $14/ yard purchased 1 1/2 yard from Nancy's Sewing Basket in Seattle.
Notions and belt making supplies from Nancy's Sewing Basket $8.00
Total cost of dress right around $100.00
The rest of the fit was exactly as expected. and the duchesse silk satin was very nice to sew with.
