A close up. Things to note, interfacing has been trimmed away on seam allowance to reduce bulkiness, no overcasting as the seams will be inside the collar all sewen up once finished.
Completed collar and neck interfacing sewen on to bodice. Did a fare amount of basting by hand to get this all to sit right. Still have to slip stitch the neck interfacing down.
You can also see in this shot that I still need to do some work on the darts, at the moment they have been hand basted into place to make it easier to rework them.
I have also started the skirt but there's not really much to show yet. I've just done the ground work, overcasting the edges and chalking up the dart and pleats, that kind of stuff. My aim is to finish this dress this week. I also have a UFO that I would like to at least do some work on before I start something new.
