Somewhere between a sewing machine and a Hotpot

Today I was running between the sewing machine/fitting and a Hotpot to make new items.

The muslin for the Vogue dress 8648 – follow up on the  Online Couture Dress Class by Susan Khalje is ready. I decided to longer the front neckline about 3,5 cm.

To fit easier the bodice I hand sewed a divisible zipper separating zipper (I hope this is a good name) – which made fitting much easier  Glimlach
(Update 16th July 2013) My feeling that the name of the zipper is incorrect was right. It is ‘separating zipper’ – thanks eumoronorio! 🙂

The back site of the neckline I made a little longer – 4,5 cm and o course I shortened the back due to the sway back.

It took me some time but in the end I have found out my skirt muslin (the basic skirt block, which I have made few months ago) so I could check if I still fit in it.

Well I had to scoop it in the waist and hip area a little bit – not so bad Glimlach.  The darts were fitting perfectly. That was good news.

Now I have to fit bodice and skirt muslin together … another challenge Glimlach

  1. Your jewelry is gorgeous! I like your idea of using a different skirt. I can’t wait to see how it goes together! BTW that kind of bodice zipper is called a “separating zipper.” I’m sorry if that’s annoying but I’m an English teacher =D

    1. It’s nice to hear you like my small glass art 🙂 Thanks a lot!
      Thanks for the name … I could not find the words yesterday evening and something as ‘separating’ sounded too easy :-)… and yes, the simple it is. BTW – I don’t mind at all you. Yestarday I could not find this name even in my native language – Polish. I need to rest – holidays 🙂 I am corecting the name immidiately 🙂

    1. Hi, yes, all corrections are already transferred onto the patterns. I still need to try both bodice and skirt to check if the wasitband is ok. And then cutting from a fashion fabric 🙂 … o no… first silk organza of course 🙂
