I was sewing my dress today by 9.30 am.It was all the fiddly bits to do,so the darts were first..marking them out.
Then tacking them before sewing them on my sewing machine….
Then a good press..
The gathering was next followed by making some bias binding for around the neck line…
Then it was a matter of sewing on the bias binding then sewing up the side seams…
I then stopped and put it away to do some more on it tomorrow,but I am really pleased with how it is looking.Tomorrow will be putting some bias binding around the arm holes and then on Friday hand sewing the hem and with luck it shall be done.
Today I also had a lovely little parcel in the post.I had ordered a lavender bag from IvyArch on Etsy and I am so pleased with it.It came beautifully wrapped and smelt divine.
Now I am going to get the house tidy ready for the school run and have a nice cup of tea.Thanks for reading,Tabitha
