Striped fabrics are fun for garment sewing because you can play with the direction of the stripes, like in this little girl’s dress that Crystal from Stitched by Crystal made. She pieced the bodice on the bias to create a perfect chevron or V-shaped stripe. She shares a tutorial showing how she cut the pieces to get the stripes to match up so perfectly. Go to Stitched by Crystal for the tutorial.
