|Sewing in the collar|
So this week I committed to doing something - no matter how small - on this project each day.
Anyway - back to the nightshirt! So I am currently up to step no.6 of 14!
I have actually (for once) followed the instructions - well ok I haven't used interfacing. But that's the only thing. Time will tell if that makes a big difference.
This week I have learnt:
how to make breast pockets - and use a template to get a round(ish) edge - don't look too closely!
Put in a collar. At first I thought I was sewing it in the wrong way - but pinning everything and checking it really has helped
Been creative as I mentioned in the last post - I didn't actually have enough fabric and cut out one of the front interfacing panels the wrong way around - so have used bits of fabric to make them long enough - has a bit of a Dr.Who look about it wouldn't you say?
I have pinned in the front interfacing ready to be sewn, and once I have done that will sew in the sleeves, make the cuff bands for the sleeves, sew up the hem, make button holes and add the buttons. Then it will be finished! I already know what I want to make next!!
Doing it this way has certainly made it more manageable for me personally and not so overwhelming/scary!
How are you getting on with your projects?
