My seamstress did most of the work, but I did help with choosing and buying the fabric, cutting everything out, a little bit of sewing, and some of the trim. I’m in the middle of packing up to move, so I haven’t had the time to help work on it like I wish I could.
So here’s my first fitting a couple days ago!
VERY informal, even the fitting itself. I still had my jeans and sneakers on! The top hasn’t been completely finished, the side isn’t stitched (just lightly pinned), and it still needs the zipper and bottom hem. But so far, I’m pretty pleased with it. The top will be more off-shoulder when it’s got more stitches than pins in it. I could tell it was going to sit correctly when finished.
I’ll have to see if I can remember what box my petticoat is in for the next fitting, so I can get a better idea of how the skirt will actually fall.
Fairly crappy pic taken by someone who’s never used a camera phone… but it gets the idea across.
