ok first note to self: these patterns are making big clothes....going
to choose a couple of sizes down for the next bodice. apart from that
it looks right. just a wee bit big.
definately big. look at the overlap.
onwards! skirts what can i tell you... thats why they leave them to
the end, cause they're so easy to sew. straight stich here, straight
so here are the two back pieces sewn together
and i'm a good girl so i pressed the seam.
Professor Carly says... I've actually been pressing every seam i sew. going over the fresh seam has a multiple purpose reason. 1) it flattens the piece so you can see what it should look like, now is the time to catch a wrinkle. 2) it evens up the thread tension (i'm told) 3)a flat piece is easier to work with
one completed skirt, front attached to back.
2nd note to self...choose a smaller skirt pattern. lots of excess on
this one too.
