Helloooo everyone. And yes, I know I haven’t blogged in ages. All I can say is, I’m sorry. I was busy – truly I was. We were sick twice in one month and the little time I DID spend on the computer was used reading people’s blogs and writing one of those composer biographies for PrivateLessonMatters. And I discovered this lovely blog – I can’t wait to see more posts!
Anyways, let’s jump right into Day Four! We’re coming down to the end here. (WHAT. Did I just hear a sigh of relief?? HOW CAN YOU BE SO CRUEL??
These are the pocket peices. I opted for pockets, which aren’t actually in the pattern. I just used the pattern peices from a different dress.
I had already sewn the skirt seams, so I ripped out about nine inches.
Here are the pockets pinned to the skirt pieces. Pockets are confusing, believe me. But worth it. 🙂
Sewing the pockets into the skirt…
…and yay, it’s sewed in!
Pinning the skirt to the bodice.
Pinning in the pleats. This is hard, but I think gathers are actually harder.
The skirt fully pinned to the bodice!
Sewing the bodice to the skirt! Big step!
The dress on the mannequin!!! Yay!! It’s coming together!
Here’s the back…
The front of the bodice…
Whipstitching the waistband lining. This takes patience, people.
See, nice and neatly whipstitched. 🙂
Sewing on the waistband bar for the hook and bar closure.
And that’s all for now! We’ll be back with more!
