Front skirt seam needs to come in about an inch.
Waist stay and buttons still to go, not to mention hemming.
But coming along nicely.
And a lesson learned when you mark the pleats on this dress, do it on the right side of the fabric. I marked on the wrong side and sewed them in place and when it came to sew it together, I realised I had the pleats going in the wrong direction. It wouldnt matter on a fabric that has no ‘right side’. Spewing.
How’s that set of vintage 50s beads. Do they work or what ?!
