Before going all assembly-line on my Four-Fast-Dresses project, I cut one bodice for practice, basted it together and I was totally underwhelmed. The pattern looked like this:
|I slashed and spread the pattern to create pleats at the shoulder.|
Basted together, the bodice looked like this:
Fortunately, I suppose, I didn't have much time for sewing, so I just mulled it over for a few days, while I did other things. When I finally had a little time, I changed the pattern back to a simple design. Now it's just a dart-less bodice with a cut-on sleeve. I like it much better.
|I just need to take it off the dress form and finish sewing it.|
It was a good thing I had enough fabric to make another bodice!
How about you, muddling your way through anything? It is awfully hot and humid in these parts, so I imagine it is just too hot to sew for some.
If it's hot, keep cool!
Heck, if it's not hot, keep cool!
