This cotton/Lycra jersey is leftover from a another outfit and I thought it would work as a wearable muslin. I have a pretty and subtle leopard print that I'll use for this dress unless the June BurdaStyle has something I love more.
What worked: The style, alterations, fabric- like the result.
What didn't: The hem. I have a Pfaff Coverlock that I'm not in love with and don't use very often. The result is not as smooth as I'd hoped for; but wearable.
I'm flirting with the idea of making it in this rayon/Lycra stripe. It has an incredible hand, with a bit of weight so it drapes very well. What do you think? Too much?
