Today I finished with my Lady GaGa-esque gold quilted fabric frock.
I couldn’t get the zip to lie completely flat no matter how flipping painstakingly hard I tried.
It’s quite funny actually cause only last week ‘James Lillis aka Too Many Tights’ mentioned another dress with an unruly zip in a blog post, namely the ‘Balmain’ frock worn by Kate Moss, the one that also unluckily ripped at the side.
Not that I’m in any way comparing my basic dressmaking efforts with those of a million dollar couture house but at least it is quite comforting to know that they too are plagued with the same small but highly annoying design problems.
I even put a double layer of interfacing around the whole of the top part but still no joy, never mind!
Besides that I’m really quite pleased with the result :)
