I am planning out my next project and I need some urgent advice. Can you please help?
I got this fabric to make a cover-up for the beach. It’s a silk crepe de chine panel about 46 inches square. I got three panels.
Because the print is on the bias, I am tempted to make the cover-up dress on the bias. If I do, the “Riviera Italia” at the bottom will be straight along the hem, instead of at an angle as shown in this picture.
But if I do this, I foresee some problems.
There’s so center seam, so the dress may twist. I understand that a bias cut often needs a center seam for balance. Likewise, I’d need to cut the back on the opposite bias to even things out. So the print would look pretty goofy on the back.
Should I stick with a straight cut or go for it? Thanks!
