Since I am always looking for a piping opportunity, I felt Vogue 1234 was the perfect choice for my Jackson Pollock-like ITY knit print. The various vertical seams presented a great opportunity to insert 3/8" flat piping in a contrasting black jersey. This, in addition to the complexity of matching the fabric design, meant that the project would take far longer than I had anticipated. And then there were the unanticipated alterations. The sheer weight of the fabric plus piping lowered my bust point a good 2" so I had to rip and re-cut the upper bodice area as well as shortening the bottom a good 4-6" at the bottom. I then inserted a godot into the center back seam to be able to take comfortable strides and to avoid any more re-working. This became one of those really LONG-term projects that at times I thought would never end. So although I love the final result, I was happy when it was finished so I could move on. I am happy to say that the reviews have been very positive.
