There are always parts of the construction process that spur me on, like getting the sleeves made.
Once I get to the invisible zipper stage, I know the dress is coming along nicely. Until I have to try the dress on. This is the perfect stage to adjust the fit.
Can you see the piping along the neckline. I still had enough piping for this dress.
This version is work-worthy.
The sleeve length also help with battle with aircon that gets very cold during the day.
There’s much less stress sewing a dress from a pretty remnant that you know works.
