WIP...Child's Dress

This dress was a LOOONG WIP because I had to show various finishing techniques on the inside of the dress. The finishing had a Hong Kong finish, blind hem, serged edges and many other kinds of finishes. The Hong Kong finish was a new technique that I've never even heard of but I think it will come in handy for some projects I have in mind. 

As you can see the dress needed to have gathers and a Peter Pan collar. I do love the gathered look especially for a child's dress and its nice to have a contrasting collar. I am so glad this dress is done. Now I can move on to make  things for me.

Congratulations Kim. The dress is beautiful. I've never heard of some of the finishes you had to use...maybe I better steer clear of garment sewing.

Can't wait to see what you make next.

Great work. That is such a pretty dress, it has me wishing my girls were small again. I'm going to have to find out about a Hong Kong finish as I've never come across that before.
