I’ve just come back from a fitting with Mrs M
It is for a wedding in August, and is going to be made in Bubblegum pink linen…
Isn’t it lovely…. I personally would never have chosen this colour, BUT I think it’s totally going to work with Mrs M. I think everyone knows what colour suits them. With the wool and button I’ve made a massive crochet flower….
What do you think?!?!?!?
So on to the muslin construction, I generally use vintage sheets to make up my muslin’s. They are pretty, and are easily bought from second hand shops AKA Thrift stores!
As ever, when i’m cutting out a pattern I take over the kitchen table! We all do that?!? RIGHT?!?!
A close up of the shoulder and sleeve.
The left shoulder….
The under arm seam and bust dart…..
And here is Mrs M modelling the the font view….
And the back view…
So What alterations are required?!?! The pattern is cut out in a XL the bust darts are L and I have added 3/4 sleeves (They are from the jacket in the pattern) Due to the bust dart alteration, the shoulder straps are a mite too long also.
The real thing!
Well it’s another quickie but….. it is a very productive one! (I have my Accountancy course today)
I had said that my swing class was a little “relaxed” for my liking but I have to say I am sewing soooo much more at home… Which is defo a knock on effect, in a very positive manner!!!
I have managed to sort out the tension problem 😀 on the overlocker..
I’m well on my way with the lined pockets for my Amy Butler jacket…. I’m also making a new set of pj’s and attempting the placket… I normally omit this but I want to challenge myself!! I plan on blanket stitching on a bit of applique lettering too.
Now on to my fab fab new patterns…. These were given to me by my sewing teacher, She felt I would get a better use out of them!!! I just have to find a good soures for getting them sized right….
Do you have any good sources for re~sizing patterns?!?!!? I’m thinking Gertie might have all the answers!!
Till tomorrow peeps…
(more creative peeps here)
Today the to do list is massive sorry for the rush post!!
