I had a few difficulties with the fabric, it feels softer than the other cottons I have worked with so far and I ended up with gaping around the neckline even though the measurements are exactly as the raccoons dress. I have now fixed this by strengthening the neckline so it hangs better and taking in the shoulders at the neckline but it still isn't perfect. I know it's crazy, if it was shop bought I would be perfectly happy with the fit but as I have made it myself it needs to be perfect so it is annoying me. If you have any tips or suggestions for me I would really appreciate them!
Dress: Made by me using Giraffe Love fabric from Michael Miller
Pattern: Emery by Christine Haynes
I am excited to be taking part in a sew along in honour of my lovely friend, Roisin. Full details can be found here, I am looking forward to seeing all the Dolly Clackett inspired dresses. I have sorted my fabric already and in true Roisin style the dress also has a name, eeep!
