I finally got started on my little designers dress. Well I actually finished what if could. I have created a pattern. Since she wanted the red and white checked to be on an angle. I cut it out on the bias. The dress has only one seam. The zipper has been put in and I finished the raw edges. She has to come over for a final fitting, that may happen this Friday. I hope to have a picture to post at that time.
I made a basic black skirt. Knee length, elastic waist skirt. A no brainer.
I am in the process of making a-line skirt out of a silver metallic silky polyester material snake skin print. I love this material and have always envisioned it as a skirt. So I cut this material on the bias and everything is great except the zipper does not lay flat. I guess I should not have used and invisible zipper. But I really wanted the zipper to be invisible. So I still have to put the waistband in place the I know of nothing that I can do to prevent the invisible zipper from being visible.
It is that the fabric is so light weight!
Oh well. I will have a picture of this as well. I will search for a solution.
