Thanks so much with all your assistance in helping me overcome the hemming issues.
Finished the dress. Went to the party. More on my blog.
I love Sew Retro! Thanks for being here.
I don’t have any of those funky gadgets that help when you’re trying to do it solo.
Its a frustrating process of trying on the frock, working out where it needs to come up, taking it off, hanging it up and trimming, trying it on again. Its excruciating I tell you.
This pic was taking on 2nd attempt where I thought it wasnt too bad so overlocked it. Yeah. No.
Visit me here and share your wisdom, or leave a note here at sew retro.
and, not to pressure you or anything. But I have today and Thursday to do this, as the party is on friday.
I cut out the toile in size 10. According to the pattern envelope I should be a size 14 with my measurements.
No immediate fitting dramas with this one. I should get more 1957 reissues – they built them for my shape!
For more information and a couple of extra photos you can visit me here at sewredhot.
To refresh your memory, this is the pattern picture.
