Is it done yet?
- Reduced the front bodice/skirt seam allowance from 5/8 to 1/2 in order to lower the front waistline.
- Took deeper underarm seam for dress and dress lining.
- Removed the cap sleeves
- Used single fold purchased bias binding for armhole. Dress will now be a sleeveless one.
- Serge finished bottom edge of the dress and dress lining.
The final steps are to hem the dress and the lining. I also want to adjust the back collar, tacking it down the back neckline so as to keep the collar in one position. It shifts all around if I don't.
Here are some parting shots of the dress as it is now:
This is the bias binding that was attached and then turned in and pinned. Ready for hand sewing.
