Dear Dolly Friends,
Today we’re preparing the material.
I started by cutting the paper pattern, than I traced the pattern onto the outer and lining fabric.
After that I cut the fabric pieces.
I had to be very careful when cutting the lining piece because I noticed it shifting as I was cutting.
I finished the day by adding fray check to the edges of both pieces.
Dritz Fray Check is quite messy and spreads 🙁
I skipped the applique step, my hand sewing skills aren’t that great, yet.
If you’re adding embroidery/applique to your dress, this is the day to apply the decorations.

Then I cut out the paper pattern and since my chosen fabric was not wide enough to accommodate the whole pattern, divided the pattern at the shoulder.
I decided not to applique since the fabric I chose (vintage yukata remnant) is just so lovely and bright by itself.
I treated the edges with fray check.gurliebot
The yukata remnant is soo beautiful 💕. Keep up the great work. -Kat & Tatyana
