The Hundred Dresses: Day 76

January 15, 2022 0 Comments

I had really high hopes for this Heidi:

I love the pink and red and gray colorway:

I kind of bailed on trying to match the stripes, considering that I think it’s impossible to match stripes and gathers:

Pockets, lined in batiste:

Side zip:

The whole dress is lined in batiste, actually:

I’m not sure why I lined the dress, the fabric didn’t really need it. probably just to see if I could:

But this is why I hardly ever wear it, and why it’s going in the goodwill pile, finally — there’s a subtle flaw in the fabric and I managed to cut it ideal across the front bodice. Arrgh:

I know it’s nearly imperceptible, but I know it’s there, and it drives me crazy. So … oh well. I scrutinize fabric a lot a lot more now, especially bargain fabrics (which this was). If I find a flaw, I mark it (on BOTH sides) with blue painters tape, so that I can’t help but see it when I’m cutting.
