Cutting mayhem

26 Feb

Small pile of scraps from a large piece of fabric.

Note the lovely hardwood floor – HARD wood.  My knees are less than happy.  And the organza is sprinkled with lovely glittery blobs, so kneeling on it was even more fun.  Sarcasm doesn’t work well in print, so you have to use your imagination.

Here’s the good news!  The main body of the dress, all serged up and looking elegant.

A little look at how the purple trim might look.  Gee – this angle and no crinolines makes Miss Mitzie look rather top heavy.

So now to thread up the serger and start sewing those skirts.  Three full layers of 8 panels each, one layer of 16 panels that will be pleated on at a 2:1 ratio (from hip height to hem) and one layer of 17 panels (I think I squeezed an extra one out) that will be the bottom edge.  Maybe a little coffee first.  It will be a bit of a long haul!
