Several weeks into my dressmaking now, which I’ve just just been working on in the evening. The pattern is a little bit confusing, mostly because I don’t know what I’m doing, but also because the pattern is quite old – and obviously for a generation more used to making their own clothes!
So where am I up to? This week I have been working on the sleeves:
Next I began to sew the skirt panels together:
So here is what it looks like now:
The next step will be to make some adjustments to the size as it is too big for me, and this needs to be done before I can sew in the zip and sew the top and bottom together. This is taking quite a long time, but I guess it’s not like I’m working on it for hours everyday – not looking to bad now though.
