Have you ever worked so hard on a garment to get the fit just so, that when you finally do! You just let it linger on your beloved dress form to stare at it? Maybe, no, of course you have lol... That's what I've been doing since Saturday. I'm working on a dress and had actually altered the pattern at the beginning of the year before loosing 30 pounds. So of course, when I forgot that I made these alterations:FBA, adding width to the hips and side seams, and forged on with the dress.
The dress was at least two sizes to big everywhere! Now, I am not complaining in the least, but feel rather giddy that I even had the guts, or the skill to get the problem solved.. However, I am not yet finished ,but I am nearing the finish line, with only the skirt lining and hem to be completed..So, probably a days worth of work, hey, I am a slow sewer! Or, maybe I do a little bit more reading blogs than sewing sometimes hehehe... I just get so inspired by all the wonderful things that the sewing community brings about.
So, what is the dress I'm working on I hear you say! Well, I'm not saying bawahaaaaaa!! However, I will leave you with a sneak peek of my invisible zipper, that was put in completely without using an invisible zipper foot..I lost mine and haven't looked back since... Alright, ladies here's to a wonderful week!
