I think I might have sewn myself delirious. I have been sewing all weekend in order to make a wearable muslin and then the final dress for a wedding I am going to in a few weeks. It's not that I haven't enjoyed the sewing - the time has flown in. But now I have stopped, I feel like I need to decompress after such intense sewing activity.
1950s pattern I used - not the tennis dress version!
The blue and white dress on the left is the muslin, made from a duvet cover from a charity shop. I'm really happy with it, from the fit to the zip. The poppy print dress is the one for the wedding. I won't pretend that I've fully finished the dresses as some bits and pieces remain to be done, which will still take a little time.
For the blue and white dress they are:
- Add bias tape (white, bought online) to neckline and armholes
- Finish seams inside the bodice
- Make and add bias tape to neckline and armholes
- Add zip
- Add horsehair braid to hem - I haven't tried this before, but just ordered it online
Did anyone else spend the weekend engrossed in crafting activity?
