And what you see in the pics is what I achieved in two whole sessions of too hours each….yes, I agree, pretty slow but let me tell you something…there’s more to sewing that meets the eye 😉
First, I had to take all the measurement and by measurements I mean ALL measurements and of course in the correct order and properly done.
Next, use those measurements after you have added seams allowance and what have you and try draw the pattern. And by drawing the pattern I mean drawing the pattern with armhole, front neck, back neck, front armhole , back armhole,darts and some other bits that I can’t remember right now…. So yeah, you get the idea…..it is HARD!!! but you know what?…I’m sticking to it….I’m going to try my hardest and you know why? Because I’m having tons of fun….I am lost right now and I need lots of support in class but I know that somewhere along the line something will click….I’m praying for a Eureka moment 😉
I also have a plan….I’m going to practise at home. Everything I cover in the lesson I will go over at home with a different fabric and with a bit of luck I’ll even end up with two dresses for the little one….insh’Allah…
Salaams y hasta la vista,
P.S Did you know that when you cut the fabric the length of the fabric has to be parallel to the length of the selvage? You did? well nobody told me….
