Well, this time I tried to keep to some sort of a schedule, so this post still relates recent event (more than in last week's post at least).
I think we were talking about the Lily, weren't we? Well, here's how it went so far.
On Saturday, I drew the pattern pieces on my muslin fabric and cut them...
|This is Gipsy, who seems to think my muslin pieces make a purrfect cat bed. She got all cranky when I made her get up to take what I needed.|
|No straps and zipper yet, everything is held together at the back with a few safety pins, but it looks as if we're going to get there, doesn't it?|
|Pockets!These were so much fun to sew in place!|
So this is how my machine earned herself a name : Christine. I know, she's not a '58 Plymouth Fury. But she's red. And she's got a bitchy temper.
That same evening, after going out for a drink with my boyfriend, and letting Christine some time to cool down, I managed to sew my straps on (sorry, no pictures) and began hand-basting my zipper.
Have a nice week everyone, see you next week-end to talk about fitting!
