Progress….

Here are a few pics of the dress & romper that we’re working on. Both these fabrics are brand new and caught my eye as I was doing one of my weekly “walk-throughs” through the warehouse. Both projects are well under way & should be done by the end of this week.

Dress
Pattern: Simplicity 1804 (ML244255)
Fabric: ML244085
Supplies: Scissors or rotary cutter, tape measure, elasticpins, wonder tape, fusible tricot (ML244260)Image

Since the salvage rolled, it had to be trimmed off.Image

The proper needles make all the difference.Image

Don’t forget to iron the pattern before you put it on the fabric. This will make the pattern easier to work with. Image

Measure the grain line to salvage to make sure it is straight.

Again, iron the pattern to make sure it lays flat on the fabric.

By the end of the week we will have the finished product ready.
