Looks like a great deal of effort on your sewing table :) Good luck on its completion
Wow - gorgeous!! I really love the cobalt accents inside!
Thanks - I like them, too, even thought they won't ever be seen once the dress is assembled. It's just nice to know that they are there!
So much attention to detail, and it really shows. This dress is going to look amazing when it's complete (it already does). And, I love your "something blue" detail.
Amazing, gorgeous! You must be very proud of yourself. I wish I could sew as good as you.
Did you use anything on the neck to keep it from stretching?
Hi, Preethi - I stay-stitched the neckline before construction. I made piping from 1/8" cotton cording and the charmeuse/lace and inserted that between the dress and the yoke, which certainly makes it more stable. I finished the yoke neck & arms with organza. The biggest challenge to all these steps was how thin/delicate the charmeuse/lace was (although I did underline the charmeuse with cotton batiste).
