My friends, I need your sage advice. I have been (steadily, meticulously, patiently) working on a new dress. I am obsessed with getting the fit just so and since I have also been very busy this week, progress is slow. I am currently at a loss about a few critical decisions.
I am making a Butterick 50's reprint with a green cotton stripe, a pattern I laboured to find so I could make a chevron at the bust. Now that the bodice is done I have a few decisions to make:
(Also much thanks to the lovely and amazing Cindy over at Cation Designs who kindly helped me figure out how to treat the circle skirt when you are working with stripes. She made a beautiful dress a few months ago with the same chevron effect at the bust. She suggested a gathered skirt, but I think the fabric is too thick so I may cut the circle into quarters and hope for the best where the stripes line up).
