Today I received this organic cotton jersey in the mail. It has taken me quite awhile to assemble what I need to begin my adventure with the applique and reverse applique techniques and patterns developed by @alabamachanin.
But I’m.almost ready.
I have been retracing and tweaking tte pattern for the fitted dress. I’ll try it in white first to make sure it fits properly as I raised the waist and drafted the bodice smaller while leaving the hips the same as in the long fitted dress in previous posts.
I purchased one of the Alabama Chanin stencils and will try that on a long skirt first, using the colors I just got in the mail.
My plan is to get comfortable with the technique in general and at the same time talk to my local printer towork out the best way to develop my own stencils in future - on a biodegradable material rather than the mylar from Alabama Chanin, which seems quite fragile and, unfortunately, is plastic.
So excited to start!
