By today you should have something that resembles this! Now you have something really cute to wear this weekend to the movies, on a date, out to eat, whatever. I love this frock. It's comfortable, light and a cinch to make.
Honestly, I could have called this 'A Frock by Today'. If I were you I'd try this again in another style. Only next time try to do it in one day. It's a very easy pattern.
On a separate note, I'm having one of my really BAD sore throats. I get them frequently from post nasal drip. They're the kind where talking and swallowing are difficult and painful. Do any of you suffer from these frequently too? Any advice as to get rid of them? Salt water and throat lozenges are no help.
And remember to post your finished frock on Grosgrain Flickr! I'll be sure to feature you!
For final Friday steps see read more or look below:
1. If you are using an elastic instead of a tie, wrap it lightly around your waist, do not stretch, and cut at about an inch of overlap.
2. If you are making ties instead of elastic. Iron the tie rectangle the same way you ironed the band in step 2 and 3 of Thursday's post. Only this time after you have folded the piece so that the top and the bottom meet in the center, fold it again so that it looks like double folded bias tape.
4. Take your tie or your elastic and thread it through the casing using a safety pin. If you are using elastic, sew together once it is through the casing the whole way.
5. Hem the bottom. I wanted a longer length so I only hemmed my bottom about 5/8" but if you want a shorter length feel free to hem higher. DONE! YOU HAVE AN AMAZING FROCK FOR THE WEEKEND!
