Measure twice, cut once… Measure twice, cut once… Again I am working from long distance so I can’t keep checking the fit as I go. Which gives me minor anxiety… but I’m leaving plentiful seam allowances if I have to let it out anywhere. However, I am thinking it more likely that I might have to take it in. A week away till Akina’s Quinceañera, and I think I’ve made pretty good progress today… one of the biggest steps being cutting into that lace! But the skirt is cut and the bodice well on its way… The blue fabric is the underlining for that leafy lace I posted a couple days ago (below you can see the skirt and skirt lining gathered together)… and the lace is now applied to all the bodice pieces and ready to be sewn! I have a couple more hours this evening to focus, but I think tomorrow will be dedicated to making the same progress on Dress No.2.
