Splitting up to go One Direction

Foto-1903

This dress is in my mending box. I made it about two years ago, having sat on the fabric for quite a while because I loved it so much,

I couldn’t decide on which direction I wanted the squares, so I choose both. Or wasn’t there enough fabric to do it all in One Direction? Whichever the reason was, I spent plenty of time at matching the different rows of squares. And because of that careful matching, there wasn’t much allowance for seam allowance. Wouldn’t matter, I thought, there’s not going to be any strain on the seams running around the skirt anyways, right?

WRONG. Maybe there wasn’t much strain on thos seams, but with hardly any seam allowance they break. That’s how it is. So I’ll have to take the skirt off. And then what? Make it a blouse? I don’t know, but it seems a shame not to use this lovely print in whichever diretion it will go.

  1. Makalöst läcker klänning!! Synd på sömmarna, men du hittar nog på någon bra lösning, utifrån rådande omständigheter!! Blir det annars för klumpigt att sy fast, typ vita bomullsband över?

    • Ja jag har funderat på att sätta band på insidan, men då har jag ju sömmar som kommer att synas och lite grann förstöra mönstret. Jag tror jag får sprätta av kjolen och antingen göra en blus, eller sy på en ny kjol i annat tyg. Synd, för jag gillade verkligen klänningen
