a cheetah print dress

A cheetah dress, because (i have no idea why) she insisted on buying this fabric as soon as she saw it in the shop. (and she loves the softness of  butter chiffon ).

 can you see where the dress sags a bit in the side?  that is what happens if you don't hang a circle skirt  to settle.the fabric on the bias will relax in use, so we have to let it "hang" for at least 24 hours and redraw the hemline to achieve a proper circle hemline. This useful pic shows exactly what to do:

I finished the hem with black bias tape. Far easier than folding and sewing the circle edge.  what do you think?
