Elastic gathered bodice–how to make???
I got a sundress in the Bahamas many years ago that has a puckered bodice; the puckering is done with many rows of elastic thread (I think). It is not a tube top–the bodice is sleeveless but has a slightly scooped neckline and armholes, and the fabric over the shoulders is also puckered, as is the bodice back fabric. I want to copy this dress before it dies, but can’t figure out how to do the elastic stuff. I am very challenged about figuring things out from the way they look–I do much better with an explanation, unfortunately–meaning I have to pester all of you for help. 🙂
Thanks to anyone who can help me on this one. And Happy New Year.
