Tweaks needed

The red and black dress is about complete.  I have to make some tweaks to the waist line area.  I wish I had attached the front and back pieces differently.

I have learned from reading articles and from practice that if you have several front and back pieces, like this dress, that if you sew all the front pieces together then the back pieces together, fitting issues can be easily fixed with the side seams.  I did not do that with this dress and have had to rip seams in several places, make fit adjustments and then realign everything to fit.

This has slowed down the completion of this dress.  Once I make a final tweak (I hope) within the waist line area, I only need to attach the waist insert facing and hem the dress.

If only I felt like sewing after work, I probably could do this in two evenings.  I am just drained of late.  I need to get my sewing mojo pumped up also; that is an issue now as well.  I think it is the seasonal transition.

Photos later.

  1. I know how you feel about sewing after work. I just can't get the energy alot of times. If I could just manage to stay up one hour later at night I could get so much more done. I wish I didn't love sleep so much :(

    1. I like sleep more myself. I can no longer burn candles at both ends.

  2. Ugh, I relate! When I am drained from work, I give myself a pass from the sewing room. I hope you are more energized soon. :)
