V8772 green wool crepe gauze shirt dress with belt

This is the second make of the Vogue blouse/shirt pattern that I lengthened into a dress. I did clean finishes on the inside - so flat felled seams on shoulder, arm, and side seams. Seam binding on hem.

 

I think the belt is too chunky so have ordered a skinny belt. We will see how that works when it arrives.

 

Fabric is from FabricMart - had since 2018 - so not as long as some other pieces. Metrosene thread, size 11 needle, Hug snug seam binding folded over for hem. Changed my mind about the gold buttons I was originally going to use and went for a more versatile look. Buttons ordered from buttons.com since I haven't been in shops for most of 2020. Ordered them on 10-31 and they arrived on 12-28.

 

Fabric was the dickens to work with, but by holding the iron about two inches above fabric and organza press cloth and then finger pressing darts, seams and hems, turned out okay.
