SewStylish Spring Fashion Challenge 2014

Hand-sewn Short Fitted Tank Dress

Hand-stitched double layer jersey dress.

*This dress is completely hand sewn.

*The top teal layer of jersey was stenciled with white paint using an Alabama Chanin Anna’s Garden stencil.

*The painted layer is basted to the solid tan layer.

*I then, stitched around the outside of the shapes. I cut the top teal layer leaving 1/8 inch of the white paint to reveal the bottom tan layer.

*The side and arm seams were hand sewn and then felled to the inside and top-stitched.

*The arms and neckline are bound using bias strips and secured with a Cretan stitch.

    What a truly beautiful dress!!! I have a friend who makes Alabama Chanin's clothes and I had never seen them before six months ago. I am stunned by the perfection of the very detailed and time comsuming hand-stitching. And I just LOVE your colors! What a wonderful piece of art!!!
