This week went by too fast. Does anyone else wonder what happens between Monday and Friday? I remember writing about how I planned to finish this dress by end of the day last Saturday. A week passed by and it's Saturday again! Aaaannnd it's still not done.
I have been having some problems with the bodice lining. I think I had probably cut it a bit too small? I don't know why or how, but it did say in the pattern (it's Fairy Tale dress from Oliver & S) that the folded lining seam allowance "should be shorter than the collar itself by about 1/8" on each side". Mine is more than that, about three times as wide. I've fixed one side of it (shown in the picture) by ripping the neckline stitches, reducing the folded lining seam allowance by half and resewing the neckline with a 1/4" seam instead of 1/2". I did this because I had trimmed the seam allowance to 1/4" before I realized the mistake. Does that make any sense?
Anyway, the weather was so beautiful today. We spent a couple of hours at the park and it was really great. Hopefully, I can get more sewing time tomorrow. I really need to finish this dress. It has been too long and it is starting to get on my nerves :-(.
