Yesterday I started putting the pieces together on my navy wrap dress. I fused the interfacing to the collar, cuffs and front facings. Then I stitched the bodice together and basted on the collar.
I worked in short bursts between baking up some goodies for a work event for today. (Saturday, I know!) I am happy with the fabric and I’m hoping it comes together the way I pictured it. I added no length in bodice or skirt length so we will see how Butterick length looks on me after the fact without adjustment.
Later today I hope to stitch on the sleeves. These will be my first set-in sleeves. I have read a little about gathering the sleeve cap so it fits properly. I really just want both sides to match. Even if they are off a little. I am excited to learn a new technique as it helps me get to the point where I can make more of what I really like.
Do you like the challenge of learning new things? Or do you enjoy the confidence of sticking with what you know?
