The Monthly Stitch: Miss Bossy finished

My Notes:
Material $2.99 (sale)
Pattern $1.00
Wash away wonder $6.99 (used about half) $3.50
Thread and Button on hand
Total $7.49!

You chose, this cute pattern and this cute, very hard to work with material. I love it now that it's done, but boy it was hard to work with. It frayed horribly, and was very slippery.

I ended up using Dritz Wash Away Wonder Tape to sew the neckline, cuffs and hem. It worked wonderful. It's just like basting, doesn't gum up or stick to your needle, which means you can sew right over it. Then it disappears when washed. Love it!

I did French seams on the sides and should have done the same for the sleeves, but I didn't. (I thought the surged seam would be ok. Its just that.....ok, not beautiful)

For the back closure I made a thread button loop. Which was a new technique for me and fun. Here is a great video on how to make one.

I love the way it hangs, and feels.
