If you've been following my posts, you'll know the last week or so was consumed by terror that I'd irreparably screwed up this dress. First I cut out half of it with maximum stretch lengthwise rather than width wise - then - in a monumental effort - I miscounted the number of panels I had left (there were only 5 to start with, which makes this more impressive) and cut out half the dress the other way. Not having enough to redo fully with either -- I just went with it.
All the black is self-fabric from the areas between the panels - due to the nature of the pattern pieces, I have a lot of tiny, wriggly little bits of blue. need to investigate what to make with them, as I am madly in love with this fabric. (Also, this is officially another stash-buster! double points!)
Honestly, I still can't believe I pulled this one off.
