|Glazed Cotton Dress 18th C.|
The front and hem are folded twice and slip stitched as well. I wanted to be able to simply un-hem the front or hem to add extra width/length if she needed it.
With the dress 90% done I couldn't leave her with out her outerwear!
Again, fabric was limited so the front panels are a little skinny.
The hood is lined with some white taffeta I found in my scrap bin.
The casing for the ribbon ties is bias tape, which has been stitched to the top inside selvage edge and slip stitched down.
I also used bias tape to hem the bottom.
