Elie Finished

I'm not wild on this dress at all. Although it wasn't too short in the end. But it did start off too low! This was before I decided to sew the bust together...
This was after... Which feels much better. I'll have to be a bit careful how I sit though!
Jersey is not my favourite material to make with as I stretch it too much and I now have a wavy hem, and some wobbly seams but I've messed about with this dress so much I've kind of lost patience. Never mind. I'm tempted to make it into a top.
Its all practice in the end!

  1. I struggle with wonky hems on stretch fabrics too! I've done some reading into it, apparently you should use a stretch needle, change your tension, even change your feed dog? I still haven't got it right : (


I love reading what you have to say!
