The Making of a Polka Dot Dress - Day 3
Progress on the frock today:
Cutting out thin strips of interfacing and applying them to the edges of the neck and arms on the lining; making darts on the front and back of the bodice lining; sewing it together (more French seams!); and, tacking together the bodice outer and lining, ready to be stitched later.
Thoughts on today's efforts:
I am taking the whole process slowly. This is not my usual quick fix finished in a couple of sittings type of project. I really hope the finished dress will be worth the effort. And, more importantly, that it will fit. Oh how I hope it fits!
And, post sewing tea and raspberry jam toast enjoyed, I'm off to collect the littlest girl. Bye for now!
