Drape Drape No. 6 : Backless dress
Once upon a time (pre-kids) I probably would have tried to get away with the no-bra look, but these days that simply is not going to happen. But I can see me donning this with a cute swimming bikini underneath and lazing on the beach. Yes please!
I used merino jersey this time purchased at the recent Fabric Store sale. You can see in the photo above it ended up being the perfect amount of fabric for this pattern. It also definitely has the right drape for these patterns, and was lovely to sew with. Can't wait to wear it more often.
And back gathering.
I also used my twin needle for the first time on the hem. I don't know why I haven't bought one of these sooner, except that I thought it was a complete different attachment for the machine not just a simple needle to insert. Next time I just need to make sure I have matching thread.
