Obviously I needed to start earlier than today if I wanted to finish, em, today. Let me just say that *my skills do not warrant such lofty goals*! My brain works hard at this. I invent solutions for myself :) But I figure it out, better by each attempt, and that is partially what sewchique is for me.
For this look, I needed to make a pattern. I prefer the
laziness of immediate gratification of draping with the actual fabric and having it finished sooner, but it doesn't always work that way.
[Muslin "B" back and "F" front // just getting started // finished with the main piece]
It's interesting how the pattern turned out. R thought I was making bell bottoms!
[Flat pattern for hip area // "slash and spread"// pinned into place]
More on this tomorrow!
