So… not a great deal of progress has been made since my last post about the blue dress I’m making for my sister’s birthday.
I have pinned the pieces to the linen and measures 1/4 inch around the side seams as I needed one inch added to the bust and waist.
Please excuse the hideous retro carpet in our flat.
I then pinned the pattern to the lining and added one inch around the edges. I was intending to finish the seams in the same way as Did You Make That? did here (such a smart way to finish). Unfortunately, I only remembered about this on the bodice front and clean forgot when I was cutting the pieces for the back! *cries*
Undeterred I ploughed on, basting the lining and the linen together using a long stitch:
Now to put the darts in and join at the sides
How’s your project going?
