M6559 Version 4

Here is Version 4 of M6559. When I originally made this dress. I used black fold over elastic around the neck and arm openings but I.HATED.IT. I wore it once but then it promptly went on the shelf and out of the rotation. I didn't want to pick out all of that stitching so I just cut of the elastic and now I'm back in the game. This is again made from the trendy knit from FabricMart (needless to say I cleaned up during that sale)


Just because, I've included a pic of me and the hubby (isn't he the cutest!). I didn''t make this dress, it's one of my steal of a deal dresses from Old Navy.

  8. Love to hear about other people's sewing frustrations! I have done that many times - got sick of something and threw it aside. How did you finish the edges of the dress after you cut the elastic off?
    You guys are definitely a cute couple! Radiating love. :)

    1. Thanks Fredette. I just folded over the edges and stitched them down with my twin needle which is what the pattern originally called for but I was trying to get all fancy.
