Annnnnd we’re back! (I think I use that wayyy too much at the beginning of posts….) Days 2 and 3 are shorter than Day 1, so I’m sticking them together.
Day 2: Monday, January 26, 2015
Here’s the sleeve with the sleeveband. It’s actually way bigger than it looks.
Sewing the sleeves to the bodice (with the lining pushed back)…
Whipstitching the sleeveband (by hand, of course)…
…and here’s the bodice with sleeves! I was very excited at this point. It was a school day, so I didn’t get anything else done.
Day 3: Tuesday, January 27, 2015
Sewing the side seams of the skirt pieces…
…ironing the sewed seams open…
Pinning the placket to the back opening. It’s hard because the opening is V-shaped and the placket is straight.
Sewing the placket. Seam allowance goes from 3’8 of an inch at the top sections of the V to the edge of the fabric. It’s very difficult and mine isn’t perfect!
The placket sewed to the skirt! *sigh of relief*
…and the other side of the placket.
The placket ironed as it should be. Prim and proper. 🙂
Miss Elliot trying to be all professional photographer. 🙂
Right then. Be back for the next installments!!
