Piece of selvedge fabric sewn with felled stich and catch stitch
and padding on the cups
I’ve made a big progress on my bombshell dress. Don’t think I’ve made everything in one day, the truth is that it has taken me 3 afternoons, but I couldn’t make any post, first because I began my sister's dress and second because I didn’t feel like it. In fact, I thought I had lost my sewing and blogging mojo till yesterday that it was really amusing. On past classes I finished the bodice and put the padding on the cups. I finished the neckline with a piece of selvedge fabric, as Gertie indicates. Yesterday was the turn of the skirt. Finally I decided to use the original skirt pattern after seeing Amy and Lladybird versions. I continued with the size 40 (although I’m not sure this is my size anymore). The only alteration I’ve made is shortening the length about 10 cm as I’m really short. I made the other change at the time of putting all together. I hate gathering because I never make it even and I gather more from a side than the other, or because, like in this case it is very bulky and I don’t like it. So playing with the draping, I get this… thing. I made 3 pleats that I sewed on the wrong side and then I turned them over. And this is the result. I’ve set it to the point where the gathering is supposed to begin which is at 5 cm, but I think it would look better taking it to the hip seam. Although I don’t love it, is a detail that I’d like to prove again and on other garments, but with more fabric to play with. What do you think? Next step is finishing the lapped zipper, and beginning with the lining. It’s almost up!
