S1063 in progress

I have had some time to sew off and on this weekend.  The top is close to completion.
I have attached the back overlay to the back and then attached to the yoke.



The yoked back has been attached to the front bodice

I have attached the front and back facing to the neckline.  Facing is from the floral print fabric.
The instructions call for sewing the sides. Then sewing the sleeves and inserting in the round.  I plan to attach the sleeves first and then sew sleeve and side seams as one.

I cut the front piece as a single layer aligning the front fold with the edge of the blueish plaid on the front and then flipped and cut out the other side.

Remaining steps are applying the sleeves, topstitching the facing and sewing side and sleeve seams.  The front bodice is hemmed and the back overlay attaches initially to the back at the hemline. The sleeves will be hemmed after sewing the side seams.  Not much more to do.  

The fabric has been fairly easy to sew, some curling on the edges.  I tried a new to me product called,
Mary Ellen's Best Press. (this is an affiliate link and I may receive benefit from this.) It is a spray starch product and helped with the fabric edges curling.  You can buy the product in a spray bottle and can also order large size and refill the spray bottle. I have never been much of a spray starch user but I have heard good things about this product and it is not suppose to leave any residue.

More sewing updates to follow.

    1. Thank you! Does your Mom still live in Danville? It is not the same place it was when I grew up. Rarely go there now.
