My daughter picked out this fabric from Girl Charlee online. There is a brown stripe in the mix here that matches the RTW brown leggings that she has on. I used Modkid's Bloom Dress pattern I have, minus the "bloom." :) I added 1/2" to the sleeve length so I had enough to turn the hem under without preparing a separate sleeve binding.
I used the patterns neck binding pattern piece. After sewing it on, I then turned it to the inside to cover my stitching, making an even narrower neckband which I like! This is the FIRST time I have attempted using my coverstitch machine to sew a neckband down with. That made me really nervous! I had no idea how it would turn out and I really didn't want to have to pick it all out. Thankfully it worked for me.
Thanks for stopping by~Shirley
