What drove me to this make?
I loved this quilting flannel as soon as I saw it on the remnant table. There was only 1 1/4 yards left so I imagined a simple dress where I wouldn’t have to cut the big bold flowers up. And piping! A simple dress is fine, but at least let’s have some piping!
Pattern – Simplicity 1890, A Project Runway pattern
|-the subtle pattern on the piping makes it unique-It is made of flannel and we will be able to layer under it for school when it’s cold (9 months of the year)||-my piping is made from rope found in the hardware section, so it a little less flexible than I’d like|
What I learned
- I need lightweight nylon cord for my custom piping
- Though I hate to do things twice, basting the piping made me more confident when sewing the seams together
