26th March 2012: Binding Been working on this all day, and I'm almost getting somewhere. Reknewing my passionate hatred of bias binding tenfold.
So I've now added the silver strips around the neckline and bottom edge of the dress, and hemmed the main dress, much to my sewing machine's protests.
I've also made the little lower back panel that the wires feed into, and all the little metal sections down the side of the dress (out of the same bias binding used in the dress).
All I have to do for this now is to make the collar, wires and arm panels, then attach it all.
Been nice and cheap this one, only costing me the price of the binding so far, but hopefully I'll do her justice. May wear this again for Nemacon if Emma goes.
