Color blocking is a beautiful way to highlight the style lines in a dress. Carla used Cranberry/Charcoal Grey Reversible Knit and did a lovely job selecting where to "change colors". Thank you Carla-I know your daughter loves this dress!
I chose not to line it as called for in the pattern. Instead, I stabilized the shoulders and the waistline with a fusible hem tape.
I used a traditional binding application (as taught in Linda Lee Craftsy Class) for the neck and armholes. The only “challenge” was the zipper. I finally figured out I had to put the binding on—then put the zipper in—and then turn the binding down and finish!
If anyone wants more details, just ask! As usual, I fully documented it in case I remake!
