New York 1478 part 3

Have you ever loved a pattern, loved the feel/look of the fabric then once they are together you hate them? that is this dress.

It might just be that the fabric is giving me a lot of problems and that once it is finished it will look lovely.

The bound button holes didn’t come out as good as they have done on other fabricP1010615

They aren’t as clean cut as the others that I have done and won’t lie flat I put two rows of stitching round them to help with the fraying problem I’m assuming that that didn’t help.

I have now got the whole dress together and the facing has been stitched on, the pockets look uneven but I have measured them and they are the same distance from the shoulder so apparently it is an optical illusion.

I’m hoping that after a good press and all the finishing touches have been put on it will look good and i’ll be able to wear it.
