Here are the sashes and straps sewn. We will need to turn them inside out and press them and then top stitch all pieces.
Yes, I cheated and made my straps one piece. If you look at the picture you can see how I taped the strap pieces together matching the markings.
I'm putting 3 ruffles on the back and cut them 3 inches wide and the width of the fabric. I will cut them off later when I see how long I need them.
Each ruffle will be a different length.
You can make your ruffles as wide as you like and also as many rows as you desire. It looks beautiful with 5 rows or more down the back.
|I have turned my straps and sashes and pressed and top stitched. Now their ready for when I sew the dress together. |
I also stitched the 3 facings together and finished the bottom edge.
Now I have sewn the sashes to the front of the dress. If you notice there are markings for the sash on the side pattern piece and I used these markings to place my sashes.
