Thanks to all who offered advice on the pocket quandary yesterday. I made a couple more variations on the theme... This one is dress length with two rounded pockets.
She? Delighted with the pockets.
Me? Not so much. Putting the pockets on took longer than making the actual dress.
This one has a kangaroo pocket. Both are edged with ribbon.
But not enough that I felt angsty about using my beautiful ribbon up.
This one is a gorgeous french terry fabric, the first time I've used this (although I've used the blue colourway before for kimono dresses). With absolutely no pockets.
Question to the doyennes of fleece: Do you hem the fleece or just stitch close to the edge because fleece doesn't unravel? I narrow hemmed both, for the rounded pockets this was obviously more tricky? Or should I just line them so hemming is unnecessary?
