There was a gorgeous dress on Project Runway recently made from what looked like little shreds of fabric. I was trying to figure out how to do this fabric treatment and this is what I came up with:
This may look like I spent hours sewing little strips of fabric on this dress but this was actually a very simple technique I want to share with you!
All it is is two layers of fabric sewn together with rows of lines and then the top layer is slashed after the garment is sewn together.
The lines are sewn on the bias and the fabric is trimmed along the lines. That way when you wash it , it doesn't fray because it's on the bias and as you probably know, fabric on the bias doesn't shred!
