Although I LOVE LOVE LOVE the retro and vintage dresses, I wanted to sew something I could wear to the office. I found this wrap dress. I chose a spandex fabric and wasn't sure how to work with it since it is stretchy and I have only worked with cottons and satins.
The guy cutting the fabric at the store said to use a zig-zag stitch so
the thread wouldn't break after the seams were done. This was the WORST
ADVICE EVER. All of the seams looked horrible and I ended up ripping
apart all of them and re-sewing them all with a normal stitch.
The dress is ok, but once again, I wish I had sewn it smaller. It is a size too big. At least I didn't have to deal with buttons or zippers and if I didn't have to deal with ripping all the seams out and start them over, it would have been a really quick dress to make.
