Hello lovely people.
There is a vintage baseball game early next week and I want to have one of these new dresses ready for it. I spent about 30 minutes ripping all the seams from the sides and the pockets. Not an easy feat considering how light this fabric is.
Once I did that, I re-measured myself and realized that I had to cut 4" from the waist and almost 8" from the hips. I also eased the A line of the sort, but had to move the pockets.
In my haste in trying on the new size, I ripped one of the pins I had in the pockets and also, in my somewhat over sewing desire for this dress (see the rick rack), I made a matching patch for the pocket.
Yeah, I could have just made a new pocket, but whatever, right?
Also, I've sewn the bias tape onto my new blouse and it worked great.
I really love how this is turning out and once I hem the sleeves and the bottom, I'm going to start on a new one. I so need some new clothes. These are going to be great.
Have a great day!
