Aussi, celui-ci n’a pas été facile à manier en effet les empiècements nécessitent de faire coïncider l’imprimé…Pas simple j’y ai passé une bonne heure ;((
Et l’idée m’est venue d’insérer des biais noirs ce qui a pour vertu de valoriser ces 2 “V” et d’atténuer la continuité du motif ;))) Pour un maintien optimal du biais, j’ai inséré les 2 empiècements à l’intérieur du biais, puis posé et cousu sur la pièce suivante.
For my 1st Papercut piece, I chose the Clover dress or rather blouse, mainly for its panels highlighting the bust that also bring originality and “rock chic” style. Indeed, once cut (pity for the 50 cm of fabric), I realized that the flared skirt did not fit my style.
And to highlight the fabric and yoke, I decided to design a bi fabrics dress with a straight cut skirt, on the same principle as my Must Have dress.
Level : Intermediate – Timing : 4 hours – Cost : €€
Also, it was not easy to handle indeed yokes require to coincide print … Not easy I spent one hour ((And it occurred to me to insert black through which to promote these 2 “V” and mitigate pattern continuity;))) for optimum support of the bias, I inserted the two panels inside the bias, then posed and sewn to the next piece.
This is the main difficulty if you opt for a main plain fabric matched with a different fabric.
Scissors in hands, I decided to limit it to a blouse while remaining on the idea of a dress BUT straight cut for the skirt. After a search from my range of fabrics, I took out 50 cm black neoprene with a thickness of 0.5 cm by The Sweet Mercrerie (used on my Aydan dress) so there is a balance of two materials and to achieve a fluidity of the dress as a whole.
Final personal touch, I flared more neck to remind the two “V” of the bust.
Adjust the blouse and skirt: I made a straight cut skirt and added two folds at the front and rear so as to coincide with the width of the gown. In addition, I gathered the bottom of the blouse to adjust the best two parts.
Again, the key success of the bi-material is the selection of two fabrics thickness almost equivalent to achieve optimum support.
