Here’s an update on the Mint Chip Dress. Well, it has a collar which was nicely hemmed by a catch stitch that I needed to practice for my class. 2 1/2 hours later, I think I have the hang of it! That hem on the collar would have taken a couple of minutes on the machine. I put on the collar and the bias binding on the inside of the collar. But I have not sewn down the bias binding. I plan to practice another stitch on that since it would have to be hand sewn anyways.
I am finding this class quite a bit of work. My instructor expects not only that you can replicate the stitches but also memorize all of the information on the stitches. Instead of sewing, I am studying. Not exactly what I had in mind. I am going to have to figure out something so that I can study, sew, work out and I don’t know…maybe relax a little too!
Your eyes do not deceive you...the dress form received implants over the weekend so as to better approximate my actual measurements. I think the placement needs to be adjusted!
