Apparently, I am very bad at matching stripes. Granted these were uneven stripes. All of my attempts were just off. Some pieces of the bodice were cut more than once until I just decided to forget it. I spent hours and hours trying to match the stripes. I do realize the curved seams did not assist in the matching process but seriously it was bad.
It was bugging me but I did not have enough time to find new fabric. So what to do? Well, I made some piping for the obvious seams to kind of distract from the mis-matched stripes. It was the only idea I could come up with. I can’t even say it works. But it is nice piping! I did not make corded piping, just flat piping. Maybe the cording would have helped even more.
