    Happy birthday! This dress is just dreamy. I don’t really like to sew knits but a design like this looks so elegant and easy to wear that I just might have to make an exception when I have sewing time again…

      Thanks Morgan! I’ve been feeling the same way about knits lately. I do prefer working with wovens. I love the results (plus it was a pretty quick make) so totally with it!

    Please, please, please! I’m working on the same dress and I can’t pass steps 1-3(yes, I’m stuck right at the beginning ). I don’t know if I cut my fabric wrong or what, but I just can’t twist my brain around it. Could you explain how you did those steps? Thanks Btw, that dress looks really good on you. I’m making mine in royal blue ponte

      Thanks Dariya! Sure I’ll help! Doing that facing is a bit tricky, just take it slow. In step 1 make sure you’ve marked all the circles and triangles on to the right side of your bodice with chalk. Next you’ll stitch each corner to the marks to prevent stretching and then clip with scissors to the mark. 2. Pleats! Bring your circles together (right sides together) and pin then baste. You’re basically folding the neck in on itself. Like a finger pinch of the facing…right sides together. 3. attach sleeves- pin- right sides together- the front bodice to the back bodice at the armhole (piece #2). Baste first then stitch . Leave a gap when you get near the facing. Stitch again or serge. Marking everything really well is key! Hope that helps! Feel free to email me if you need more help! Sewpomona@gmail.com
