Now I have made this dress before, but this time Jess asked for the sleeveless version.
Definitely had to block-fuse this fabric. Was initially going to send it to Sydney to a block-fusing company, but decided to do it myself instead. I recently received my new Blocking Board, from Webs (US) which I initially purchased for blocking my knitting.
Upon reading the pamphlet, I discovered that I could iron on it - it is large enough and has grids to align my squares - perfect!!!
Purchased fabric from The Fabric Store here in Melbourne. Jess just couldn't resist this one.
|Centre front seam - matching squares|
Had to be very careful lining up the squares - have only cut and sewn the front and am happy that I was able to match the squares with the centre front seam - quite challenging for this fabric.
Now ready to match/align the squares for the back to align with the sides of the front, before I cut. Need to remember - check/measure many times - cut once!!
