Well it’s been a while since my last post, my excuse is a change of job and working hours and therefore not the same times to get my creative juices flowing.
This is the fabric I bought a few weeks ago (Red spotty fabric) I decided then that I wanted to make this pattern again, only I decided I’d make view D (I made view B last time).
This time, the cutting out was so much quicker, maybe because I knew the pattern or perhaps I was just a bit more with it! The pattern certainly went together a lot more quickly. I decided to topstitch the top of the bodice with red cotton. I’ve also used this on the back for the zip.
The confusing part of the pattern is attaching the back facing. This needs to be done with the front bodice part underneath it somehow. The hardest part is trying not to catch the main front of the bodice in the stitching. I really wish I’d made a toile, because I needed to take the side seams in after I’d stitched them. [The problem is, I’m lazy and want to get something made quickly! Then I end up unpicking and playing around with the finished article.]
I wonder if I’ve time to make anything else before I go away again??
