AG Prom Dress- Pattern & Tutorial

Threading My Way_Featured 
     Had a small piece of Lamé fabric. 
Done some measuring, folding and gathering to make a quick prom dress. 

Working with Lamé fabric can be very frustrating because it frays so easy.  I used a single stitching foot (small round hole) to help the sewing machine to not gobble up the fabric at beginning of seams. I also used top stitching and a french seam technique.




*************Here is how to put it together. **********









Tip: Elastic is cut from old under garment. Softer and more narrow. Great size for this project.






Crocheted a scarf.
