I’ve had some experience with bias cuts, so I thought that I would tackle Simplicity 4045 (the dress). It seemed easy, but I’m struggling with the fabric. I cut it out and then let it hang for a week. One side’s longer than the other now, but that’s an easy fix. However, when I basted everything the dress was 6 inches too wide. I cut the dress down but am still having the same problem. The fabric is a poly and I would have thought that the weave would work for bias.
Should I weight the bottom of the dress? I’m hoping to get away with a simple solution!
Thank you for your help.
