Evan was a good sport and helped me take a bunch of pictures during our walk. Maybe too good a sport. He got kind of bossy.
This one is also made of cotton that I got in Sham Shui Po. The fabric looks like when you flick toothbrush bristles to spray paint everywhere. It also makes me think of somebody who’s just thrown up birthday cake. I like it!
Raised the bust darts by about an inch.
Instead of trying French seams again, I used the sewing machine’s overedge stitch with the overedge stitch foot.
The overedge stitch foot is awesome! It’s great for topstitching.
So I got really excited to do the Alder Sew-Along. Maybe a tad too excited, because I jumped the gun and made one before Jen finished posting all the tutorial thingies!
I made view B because I thought it might look more flattering than view A.
I made a size 2 because it matched my measurements pretty much to a tee.
I tried to do French seams… and ended up having to fudge the bit around the pivot point (where the skirt fronts meet the front) because I had no idea what to do re: the French seams! I am looking forward to seeing suggestions from the sew-along about this.
I misread the bit about attaching the collar and nearly messed the whole thing up, but managed to fudge stuff around a bit. I think it looks okay because the fabric is so busy.
This is some cotton I got in Sham Shui Po in Hong Kong.
These pictures are bad. Maybe I’ll post a better one later.
