Ed gave me a dress as a gift! I love the pattern and the colours, but when I tried it on the neckline was really unflattering SO rather than return it, I thought I would change the neckline so I can wear it this Spring!


I pinned a new style line on the manikin and then cut 1.5cm away from the pins so that I have seam allowance for hemming it.

I turned over the cut edge twice so that it had a double hem. It is harder to hem a curve as you sometimes get puckering, especially with stretch fabric. So I took my time and made sure it lay flat as I sewed it.

The new neckline is much more flattering.
