I now have the oh so lovely joyful remaining task of hemming of vogue 8743. There is no way on earth I am doing this by hand. I’m off to purchase some bias tape tomorrow to aid me in creating an even fluffier skirt. The lining has helped create a fuller look, hopefully the bias tape will give an extra edge (pun intended).
In the mean time it fits (yay) it looks quite fifties (hooray) and apart from discovering linen rips easily when unpicking causing holes (boo) it has been a pretty good experience overall.
So, here’s a picture to give you an idea of the nearly finished project. Yes, I am officially a bit mad for making a linen dress in the dying rays of summer. But it will be ready for next year!
