I'm making a wrap dress and just bought the contrast fabric I want to use as the ties. Only problem is that when I got home, I found I had gotten 1 yd when I should have gotten 1.5 yards.
So, I don't want to buy the same fabric again, ending up with 2.5 yards, as the fabric store is a bit of a drive for me to do over the course of a week and because I don't think I'd use the fabric for anything else.
I am wondering what other folks think would make the most sense in using this fabric: cut against grain to get a full piece of fabric for the wrap OR sew two pieces together that go with the grainline.
What say you?
Thank you, both of you. I was leaning towards the bias cut with interfacing as well. I will cut out a set of ties to try on the bodice muslin too, just to get a feel for the length.
And you're right Mimi, getting the extra bias to use would be helpful too. For one of the dress versions, I was planning on making my own piping, so would need it anyway. :)
