Well – finally I have moved on from ‘bottoms’. I’m sure I’ll be back but I think the fundamentals of skirt making have more or less sunk in. So now that I have some time off work I’ve got another full time occupation which is basically sharing my time between being hunched over fabric & pattern on the floor, and hunched swearing over my sewing machine. Oh and don’t forget the obligatory hours of internet research.
This time though, I’ve got help. I bought a really good tutorial on Craftsy called ‘Sew the perfect fit’. I am not saying for one second I can now fit any garment, but I CAN go running to the teacher asking a million questions every 5 minutes. Problem is she’s in California so with the time difference it’s slow progress.
During one of these time zone hiatuses I decided to have a mini break from the dress and try this great vintage shirt pattern. Muslin completed in a full day. Quite pleased with it but it’s too tight around the shoulder blades and bust. Reached for scissors. Watch this space.
