I did finish fitting the stay tweak. I fixed the fit and began my cutting day with the little side extensions. Luckily I have plenty of the original fabrics, so those are all ready to go.
It took me forever to trace my master pattern, not sure why. I was just being a slowpoke I guess. I enjoyed doing it though, so that should count for something right? :>
I measured out what I thought I needed for the back and skirt panels. Unfortunately when I measured and marked it out on my fabric, it didn’t leave me enough room for the other pieces. I didn’t really expect it to so no real drama ensued. I knew it was going to be close, if impossible.
The sleeve and shoulder strap fit okay but the front hangs over my skirt allowance a bit. I am quite determined to see this though, so I didn’t let it stop me. Hopefully I can eek out my extra inches in the skirts, creating a false hem or something. If not then I just won’t have a full second panel for the side skirt. Either way it’s a small sacrifice and I’m thankful I didn’t have to do any real piecing.
So far I’ve only actually cut the sleeves, the rest will wait until tomorrow.
Uhmmm... Is it just because I'm super sleepy or do these notes not make much sense? Oh well, it's as good as it's going to get tonight! :P
