I was so determined to finish this bloody silk bodice today. It’s been sitting there, part done, for so ruddy long, making me feel guilty. I just spent the best part of an hour carefully clipping, trimming and pressing all the ruddy princess seams in the silk, and in the coutil lining. I’m all hot and bothered and steamed.
Then I faffed about attaching the little collar, and pinning the lining on to bag it out. Much fiddling with trying to get all the seams aligned. AND realised that despite messing up at this stage with the suede version, and being determined to make it wasitcoat style, swing the side seams last….I forgot.
So I will have to bind the armholes, hey ho, just another job.
Bagged it out, trimmed, clipped and prepped. Turned it through…and yes, I had the lining the wrong way out. Bugger and bum!
Only two options that I can see:
[a] add a lining [aaargh] and this might make it too tight
or [b] unbag, unpick, re sew with horrendously small, already clipped seam allowances.
Stopping for tea and cake. What would you do?
