V8469, Ties

Feels like forever since the last sewing class but it's only been 2 weeks.

I was really hoping to finish the bodice today because I only have 3 classes left till the Christmas party, but the ties took up most of the class.

I spent almost 1 hour (in actual time - prob half an hour) pressing the ties... rolling the seams out so there would be no "ditches", then pressing, bit by bit... it was hard work. My thumbs got so sore!!

At this stage I'm not sure if I will make my deadline... I'm going to pin the midriff piece and bodice together and get the gathering ready for next week, hopefully by the end of next weeks class I can be up to the zipper.

Fingers crossed!

Bodice and ties.

Spent 1 hour ironing the ties; rolling out the seams (not sure if I'm using right terminology!)

Modification: keeping both ties the same length so I can tie it behind instead of to the front side.
