I have just posted a question on Sew Retro about this dress I´m working on, and I´ll just post the whole thing here as well. Hope someone can help me! 🙂
I am currently working on a wrap-around dress from the 70s (don´t you just love the colors and the accessorizing of the original design drawing?). I have finished everything, but I find that the neckline is a tad too revealing for me to wear without a top underneath. I would love to wear this as an evening dress without feeling like I constantly have to pull and adjust the top to make it stay put. Do you know what I mean?
I am hoping that some of you talented ladies can help me with this? I have tried to add a button in the side seam, and a loop on the opposite side, but this adds too much tension on the side seam. I have also tried to place the button on the princess seam, but that doesn’t help at all.
I hope that my pictures and text gives you a proper understanding of my problem, if not please let me know, and I will try to explain it better! 🙂
So, my faith is in you wonderful seamstresses, do you have any suggestions on what to do?
