Basted and Sleeveless Simplicity 1777
Here I am wearing my version of Simplicity 1777 on matte jersey fabric. I had to switch the fabric as previously mentioned here. I also realized that the muslin fabric I was using (linen) did not match the fabric I was going to use (matte jersey).
I love how the dress looks, but when I followed the instructions for gathering the center front bodice and skirt, I had to get rid of them. I decide to keep the inverted gather at the center front and eliminated the rest. These extra gathers near my waistline were not working for me because gathers add bulk. So, out the window they go, asap!!
Everything has been machine basted. Now, its time for the sleeves.
