Creeping Progress on Tea Dress - L
Well, I suppose I could sew in the net sleeves.
Tonight I will try to baste the underlayer to the bodice and then baste each outer layer over it. THAT should allow me to get close to even. And when I say 'un-even' I am NOT talking about a quarter or half inch. I've got 4 - 6 inches of crazy.
Please wish me luck.
This picture is even worse quality, but I finally got it to move from my phone to my computer. You can see that the top layer is so very far from even that...well... it's really bad.
I mad a TON of progress last night. I got the top and bottom hand basted together and everything is hanging nicely. I got the lace 'over' sleeve sewn to the front. The net 'under' sleeve is sewn in. Tonight I plan to baste the chiffon and lace over layers into place and baste the center seam line on the top. There are so many layers and they are each a different size! I'm basically sewing them into place by hand so I can machine sew them all together. I even got a hem pinned!
I can see the light at the end of the tunnel! And it's TEA!
