Learning curve

Dress pieces

This is my big box of pieces: paper, fabric, and lining. Much as I love the contrasting blue basting thread I think that for the real thing I'll be basting by machine. I've stitched the front side panels to the front and it required several little snips to ease round the curves, snips which I'd be much happier making with a good firm line of machine basted stitches at the half inch mark. This is all part of the learning process though and yet another reason why it's a really good idea to make a muslin.
