There’s a new little work in progress which I have named Princess Victoria I. I am using the pattern and template found in Antique Lilac’s website (thank you!) and I have scaled it to fit an SD10–although I feel that it might be a little bit too big.
One of the things I LOVE about sewing is seeing the piece of clothing come together from the many different pieces !!
But alas, as soon as I decided to sew the lace onto the bodice, I realized I did not have black thread. With all these beautiful thread colors in stock, I wonder what kind of seamstress does not have black thread available?
After making a trip to two different Walt-marts (the only store where I could shop for crafting materials open after 7 p.m.) I was able to purchase black thread!
Unfortunately, after sewing together the bodice, the fit was awkward just as I had expected. Therefore I decided to sew darts onto the design as a last, desperate measure. The darts did not help much, and so today’s entire sewing efforts have not yielded the desired results.
I guess I’ll just have to give it another try tomorrow 🙂
