Dressmaking Revisited

I reealllyyyyy wanted a new form fitting dress made from winter jersey material, but I did not want to spend a lot of $$$.

I found a sale (hooray!), and purchased 1.5 Meters of Heather Grey winter jersey material for about  $30 CDN. 

The end result?

I used a cut out technique to create lines that contoured my body shape. This custom made design is extremely form fitting as a result. 

Working with this fabric was tricky because of the intense 4 way stretch. I had to take extra care to triple stitch the seams to avoid embarrassing splits.

The back is secured by a black zipper. 

The lines minimize bulging areas 🙂 

Thanks for reading,
