I hope your weeks are going well. I haven’t posted much on sewing lately, so I thought I’d share the progress of my Butterick 4977 halter dress. So far, so good. Needless to say, I am pretty excited about this dress and hope to wear it a couple of times before the weather gets cooler.
So here is a close up of the braided strap. This look was achieved by cutting out six long strips of fabric on the bias, sewing the right sides together, and turning it inside out. Thank goodness for loop turners, because I would have been up the creek with all of those strips!
I was using mostly French seams throughout, but I think at this point I will use the serger to complete the skirt seam. Now I need to attach the lining, insert the zipper, insert some foam bra cups, and hem. Hopefully, I will get a bulk of this done this weekend.
