Sandy Mackie: Day 2:
The bodice, and the skirt with pockets, are now complete.
I'm not happy with the facing for the collar. I checked the pattern was all correct. I had to take an inch off as it was too long when I attached it to the neckline. (Where are you Lyn, when I need you.)
All the other parts to pattern came together beautifully.
Sandy - Day 3:
I have finished the dress. There were a few problems with the pattern. I needed to add an extra pleat to each side of the dress to make it fit. And I needed to run a tacking stitch to the back of the bodice to ease the skirt on so it fitted.
I am happy with the end results.
