I’ve been hit by the lurgy yet again! I came down with a cold on Tuesday and on Wednesday all I could do was blow my nose and watch tv. So that was my cleaning day gone to pot. I also didn’t have as much energy for sewing as I’d hoped to have.
But I am halfway through making my dress – New Look 6723.
I’m making View D which has a sweetheart neckline
The stitching you can see around the neckline is called ‘stay stitching’ and it helps to stabilize the fabric during construction.
I still have to line the bodice which basically means making two bodices and joining them. That makes it a little complicated because the bodice is made from eight pattern pieces but hopefully it’ll all be worth it in the end. I plan on working on it more this week but this is a very busy week for me so I don’t know if I’ll be able to finish it.
