I know I have been rather derelict about posting anything really sewing related lately. Life has been rather hectic and continues to be so. My sewing has rather suffered as a consequence, which means I have nothing to post about. Fortunately, Miriam to the rescue!
Now that my Civil War dress is all finished, we can get on to working on her 1940s dress. I may or may not be making one myself....... Miriam chose to use a mustard yellow rayon challis. The challis will give it a wonderful drape.
Miriam came to my rescue today by coming over so we could start working on her dress.
We managed to get the mock bodice cut out, sewn, altered, and adjustments made to the flat pattern pieces in the morning.
Unfortunately the easiest way to mark a pattern is by taking the mock bodice apart.....
I have all the pieces with me, so I can work on making the adjustments I need to another copy of the pattern, as I think a lot of these will be the same.
Sarah loves to sew, learn more about sewing, and create items with a vintage flair. Her arch enemy is clipping curves, and she has a tolerable relationship with the seam ripper.
