Time for another update…
Last time we caught up with our intrepid dress it looked like this….
I pulled it all to pieces. put the correct edges together (and found another one that had been matched wrongly as well!) to0k out the extra-extra width pieces I’d added, took out the pockets that made my hips look huge and sewed it all together again.
And guess what, it looks like a dress:
There are some things to work on though:
- the darts for the bodice aren’t in the right place, well one is, but the other isn’t
- the skirt darts are not aligned. need to work on this
- wondering if it needs a little bit more length?
- for some odd reason, the front of the skirt which I didn’t make any adjustments is too big and doesn’t match the width of front bodice, which I have made wider. Weird!
But I am still enjoying this experiment and can’t wait to see how it looks next 🙂
So fellow Burda Sew Along folks, how are you are doing? I’m loving the photos on the Pinterest page. What challenges have you had, what successes? only one more week of May – scary huh!
In other news, I have many many many next projects planned. I met up with the fantastic girls from the Wellington Bloggers Network on the weekend and came away feeling really inspired. Can’t wait to get started. On everything. At the same time. Now!!!!!!
