I still haven’t made it to the sewing room with this project, but I spent quite a few hours on it again this weekend. What did I do?
Pattern pieces traced off and/or drafted
25 pieces for a simple princess seamed coat with only 8 main pattern pieces? Yes, that’s how many I’ve traced and drafted after tracing the first 8 for the muslin!
Next time I plan to make a coat from a Burda Style magazine pattern, someone, please, remind me that I could buy the pattern from Vogue and skip this step!
This was as boring as anticipated, but I made up for this by using an heirloom metronome (complete with heirloom repair) to count the 10 seconds I fused each spot with.
It kept me on track and drove the rest of the family mad…..he he he…..that should reduce the requests for tailored garments.
Fabric cut out
and all the interfacing and stay tapes fused.
Actual sewing? Perhaps in July!
