Experimental Dress Making part 2

Sewing without a pattern.

A second remnant only 108cm wide featured graduated elastic panels.  I'm guessing It's been designed for making tube skirts with centimeter wide stripes woven into the fabric to mark out the length.

With right sides together I formed a long tube the full length of the fabric piece.

Using the stand I worked out the armhole depth in relation to the overall length and...gulp, cut two identical openings down into the fabric.   These were then bound with bias binding and threaded with elastic.

The shoulder/ neck was then finished with french seams, hems were double folded and top stitched.
