Starting to sew! (Posted 28th July 2012)
I've made some good progress today and yesterday! I managed to dye the dress yesterday- it's a little lighter than I would have liked because the material was not 100% cotton but it could be worse. I left it outside whilst I was at work and it's dried really nicely, no run marks or anything!
Today I cut the bottom off the dress, to edit the length and make it shorter. I used this offcut and managed to make my nurse's cap, and I also got it all hemmed and added the embellishments. I also started to add bias binding to one of the sleeves. I'll finish the other tomorrow, and I'll also add darts and hem the dress too. It's going well :)
Dress! (Posted 23rd July 2012)
I have ordered my dress :D I ordered a couple of sizes too big, just in case, (and I can just take it in if need be) and now I'm all antsy for it to get here. It hasn't even been dispatched yet but stilllll I'm excited. I hope it's gonna be sent soon because I'm eager to get to work... Everyone hope for me!
