So I did it, I finished my first stretch project. Am I 100% happy with it? No. But, I am pleased to a certain extent. I am still tossing up weather or not to unpick and restitch the neck line, it doesn’t sit perfectly flat and looks a bit uneven. But I think I might just leave it. Its my first go and it’s a good fit. It is light and floaty and perfect for a everyday throw-on dress for those busy school days of chauffeuring the kids here, there and everywhere. It’s just SO comfy! Things I would like to try for next time would be to use a double needle on the hem, I think it would look nicer. And I needed to take more time with the neck line. I am glad I tried the dress on halfway through sewing cause I would have been so disappointed with the fit if I had not of made adjustments to the size half way through. Plus the fabric choice- while I adore it, is wrong for a maxi- hence the belt. It just needs something to break it up a bit. The print is just too small.
