Not sure if it worked but is is more interesting I think. If I had matched the stripes it would have looked like one piece of fabric.
This dress was labelled "easy" and made up very quickly. I like the easy fit and would like to make it again in something besides stripes!
I have already started the "skirted" project for next week using one of the new Vogue summer patterns so be sure to check back and keep sewing!
