the bodice on my first handmade dress is slowly coming together. pinned the darts on the front and back and managed to at least sew one down (the rightmost one) before it got too late for noisy machine chugging.
tonight’s tools: tracing wheel, carbon paper, a heckload of pins and some 100% steely determination to override the goondu mistakes and insane line-matching obsessions. never give up! never surrender!
One thought on “sewing diaries #2”
Fabulous choice of fabric… love gingham checks. And I really like those dart placements. You’ve done a great job of keeping the checks symetrical across the front. Dead impressed so far!
