|My Temporary Pin Cushion Till My Magnetic Pin Case Arrives!|
Today was my fifth dressmaking class, but fourth week working on the New Look 6936 (first week I got measured and did some practice on my machine).
As mentioned in my last post, I was up to sewing the bias binding around the neck. The binding is suppose to neaten up the edges around the neck. It was quite easy to stitch in a straight line, it was a bit tricky around the curves, but I managed.

After I sewed the bias binding on to the collar, I put the skirt and the top together. At the moment it looks like a kimono! I am making a size 8, and it is huge!

I tried the dress on at class, and with a little elastic to gather in under the bust, it looks alright. When I wear this, I will be wearing it with a big belt.
My dressmaking tutor keeps emphasizing that the style of this dress is loose and shapeless.
Next week I will be inserting the elastic under the bust and shortening the hem.
