Flannel Dress Finished
100 Acts of Sewing, Dress No. 3
I chose a very subtle flannel for this dress.
It’s plain. I like the flannel fabric a lot. It has nice lines. I like the open edges on the hem–will look nice over leggings. It will be a comfy treat.
It can be layered for the winter, but looks best, I think, for fall or spring with maybe a lighter cotton sweater. I can’t really wear a wool sweater next to my skin. My cotton turtleneck t’s are a bit heavy for it, but will work. Maybe it needs a very thin knit top underneath?? Will think about that possibility. But would like one with a bit of a mock turtle neck. I could also make it a bit shorter for a kind of long tunic look. I thought about pockets, but decided not for this dress in this fabric. I do love pockets though. Seam pockets would be better, but I do not know how to do that. Yet.
The neckline came out really well and was great practice for me. I made my own bias strip:
I am having so much fun!
