The couture dress follow up

Follow up on basting the bodice pieces. The silk organza is based to the fashion fabric following the seam lines.
You would think I should not bother with the stripes on this fabric – hmm… I had to re-base the back middle part as the stripes did not match. It was too annoying.
Fortunately I have made large enough seam allowances allowing this small adjustment.

Tomorrow I will join all bodice pieces. Then I can start working on a skirt. I will take my own self drafted skirt pattern. I don’t need so many seams in it.

Dlatego tez staram sie kupowac teraz materialy wysokiej jakosci – ktore sa drogie i wyczerpuja moj budzet blyskawicznie. Wciaz walcze z nalogiem kupowania wykrojow… 🙂 czasami naprawde trudno sie powstrzymac…

    Are you keeping track of the amount of time needed to complete this dress? It’s on my to do list, I guess I’m in for a lot of work! Would be helpful to know how many hours it takes.

    • Well… it is something which cross my mind yesterdat 🙂 My feeling now is that actually it doen’t costs so much work (time) as it looks like. The most work was done when I was making and fitting the toil. I found the process quite relaxing – actually…
      But it is a good point and I am going to track the time – it is a project 🙂
