I sewed the lining on the midriff and graded the seams. Oh yeah, I know what grading is now. I'm a big girl sewer. I've moved up a grade. Sure, all the seams look like a drunk person cut them, but let's not be picky. Speaking of wobbliness, I've realized it's quite the challenge to sew straight. I read in a sewing book that it was important to practice sewing straight lines. I thought, "What kind of dodo doesn't know how to sew in a straight line." Since then I've realized....me. :) Oh well, I'm practicing on my wedding dress. Ha!
I also sewed the right side seam on the skirt and skirt lining. We're getting close, folks. There is that zipper to contend with though. And I think the midriff is too big and needs to be taken in over an inch in order to be more form-fitting. If I wasn't worried about my boobs popping out, it wouldn't matter.
So all I have left is
- sew left side seams of the skirt
- sew skirt lining to skirt
- insert zipper
- hem dress
- figure out boob situation
- dye dress
- add embellishments
But now it's time to dance with my honey. I've been giving him private dancing lessons in our living room. So nice :)
