These were taken today after much cajoling as we completely forgot to take pics on the day. The girls would NOT face the camera so I’m afraid you’re going to have to imagine the front of the dress, and the bodice mostly too – AB wouldn’t even let me put her hair up. Still you get the idea. I didn’t have enough fabric to pattern match the lovely butterflies on the back unfortunately but she didn’t mind and wore the dress (and favourite party shoes) all day today and to the wedding a couple of weeks ago.
On to sewing for me, I have been doing some reading about trouser alterations, and started on the actual sewing too, wonderfully. In my online travels, rather by chance I stumbled across something called thread tracing and it is really really useful. Already. I’ve only used it once. In fact, tomorrow I plan to make trouser muslin #2 and will be machine thread tracing my little heart out.
Do you use thread tracing for muslins or beyond? Does it work for you? Why?
