I shall take tonight’s post to update you on my shirtdress (Vogue 1220)! Yay for you!
I am making some serious headway on this. In less than 2 hours I was able to get the sleeves almost finished.
Oh the sleeves. THE SLEEVES! I can definitely use more practice with easing sleeves into their spot. Pinning and basting then stitching. On the one sleeve, there are two huge folds on the backside. I haven’t yet determined if they are huge to anyone else, so I’m going to leave it alone for now. And I love the french seam on the sleeves. I guess since there is a cuff, the seam is exposed. And the french seam is a pretty way to finish a seam.
Alls I’ve got left is to turn up the sleeve cuffs, hem and sew the buttons. Oh, wait, the belt. Ok, so I’ve got a few more evenings of sewing left.
