Having lined my first dress with its own fabric (and getting it inside out), I decided to line all of this dress with white cotton sheeting, which at £2 a metre was perfectly acceptable.
Apart from not being able to buy my style 'off the peg', the fact that I can create a vintage style frock over over 3 metres of fabric for under £12 has got to be a major motivator for me. In the past I've spent an awful lot on vintage reproduction dresses, which truth be told are often badly made, unlined and ill-fitting. That's why I think I'm experiencing a double whammy of joy when sewing- I get a custom made vintage style dress and it's cheap!!! Although when I'm proficient enough I do intend to make myself something in Alexander Henry's fabric 'home sewing is easy'- how could you not?!
Unlike my first dress, the Worf has an invisible zip which I most definitely prefer. It took me a while of you tubing and consulting my sewing notes to remember exactly how to do it but I'm pleased with the result.
What do you think?!
