Seeing as this is the very first pattern I've attempted I'm making myself go nice and slow and methodical. I get a bit excited with new projects and want them finished now! I want to see the completed peice! But I now I need to take my time with this, read everything thoroughly and stop sewing when I feel like I'm starting to flag a bit, I don't want things to go pear shaped or I'll get a bit angry and loose interest...."this patterns not working!"
So I've started with all of the cutting.......... (erm, of course)
Annoyingly I needed a different size for the skirt to the bodice so I had to do a good job of 'blending' the pattern lines.....damn you pear shaped body!
Once I had all of the pieces ready I got to work cutting my fabric....even this needed mass concentration ...the grain line, on the fold, matching up the selvages....I'm sure that any sewers reading this will think I'm completely stupid but these new words and terms are mind melt for a complete newbie!
So I have all of my pieces, it doesn't look like much once it's all cut. I can't wait for it to soon become a dress (hopefully not a tent) but I'm going to call it a day....look how good I'm being!
Oh, and as usual all work overseen by Betty's watchful eyes....
