Simple Chemise Pattern made with drapey Rayon
Used Bias to finish edges of top of Chemise and made wide straps to cover under garment straps.
Attached rayon seam binding and hemmed bottom.
Ottoman Slipcover.... Looked sew easy....Not Sew True
Antique hand loomed Rug which was already in the top of an old slipcover...
Had to removed from previous sides and matte frame in with Crypton Velvet and miter corners...
When removing from previous slipcover the ends had been cut off and were unweaving the rug...
Machine finished the edges all around and backed with a piece of the black Crypton and then framed in with a strip and mitered...
Now that the rug was backed for strength-went back in and hand tacked the strips to make sure it did not fall apart.
Made self welting out of the black Crypton and then attached all around the top to fit the top of the Ottoman....
Made the Crypton skirt with pleated corners
Made the lining with Cotton Sateen-attached skirt to Slipcover top...attached lining to inside of the slipcover...
Attached rayon seam binding to Crypton and hand hemmed.
