Shift Dress - Completed

Pattern: Self-drafted
Fabric: Linen (Harisons)
Underlining: Spun Voile (Harisons)

  • Used the underlining method for lining
  • Used store bought bias binding as facing for the neckline and arm hole.  Machine stitched from the front, hand stitched down from the back through all layers as this will ensure the lining do not creep up
  • Also used bias binding to hem the dress and hand stitched down with catch stitch to the underlining fabric only as it's a more 'flexible' stitch
  • Installed the invisible zipper and a hook and eye
  • The hand of the underlining was on the stiff side instead of flowy
