Twist Top Dress Finished … almost

in: Sewing
Nylon Knit
Nylon knit from Lori

I still have to trim off the serger tails from the narrow/rolled hem on the sleeves and bottom hem. No pix.

Lori gave me this fabric at a BABES meeting. It’s nylon with 4% lycra. It’s heavy in the aggregate. That is, it doesn’t seem heavy until you are holding a length of. I suppose it pulls the dress down, but since I want an ankle length dress and I’m tall, that seems to work fine on me. If you just pick up a swatch, the knit is almost sheer.

I’m a little concerned that I got a boob bulls-eye with the roses, but I haven’t tried the dress on me or ‘Tina. Oh, who cares, I will love it. How many of these can I make before people start to notice I’m making the same dress over and over?
