The pattern instructions have you use bias tape around the neck edge and the edges of the faux bolero (as you can see in the pictures on the pattern page). This dress was my first time working with stretch fabrics and I felt it was a bit ambitious to combine that with bias tape, which I am not the biggest fan of at the best of time (I love the way it looks, but I always have difficulty getting it on nicely). In addition to this, I couldn't figure out how to use bias tape on the neck edge when there is also the fold of the faux bolero bow. So in the end, I cheated, omitted the bias tape and just sewed the neck edge my own way:
All in all, this dress may be my favourite homemade item yet! I am in love with Bootstrap fashion patterns (which I believe are Lekala patterns? I'm not sure how the system works), I am delighted that I chose the highest quality fabric the shop offered instead of going for the budget one, for a first project with stretch fabrics it's a great success and I learned a LOT. And, perhaps most importantly: I think it looks amazing on me.
