Sewing the jeans dress “Irina”

We chose a soft, thin chambray fabric for this dress, a particularily summery denim which is light and airy and therefore wonderfully comfortable to wear. For such softer fabrics, we recommend applying Vlieseline shaping tape to the neckline before finishing. We cut a strip of fabric to make our own bias binding for the neck, and used the Binder Attachment for Unfolded Bias Tape #88 and #Binder Foot #95 to bind the neckline edge.
