To recap, this is the pattern I'm working on (a wearable muslin of V1082, of the fitted version).
I was feeling kinda blah with my skirt sewing, and going slow with this one. I wanted to make my own piping too, have the fabric to use, and the cording, but each time I put the fabric down on the floor to mark it for continuous bias, the Bean proceeded to sit on it, jump on it and so on... Really makes it even tougher to proceed with the project... The prospect of having to make yards and yards of the piping.....
:) But, this recent Saturday I was at this sewing meetup (brunch and fabric shops crawl, which was super great!) and I picked up 4 packs of black piping (among other thingsss...) which was the best decision for me at this stage! I felt quite rejuvenated coming back from the meetup with other sewing ladies so I was pinning and basting as much as I can.
So this is where I am. Front side all pieced together. Just needed to be topstitched.
And then of course there's the lining to tackle.. :) But I think it's shaping up okay donchathink?
I shall press on, at snail's pace, as usual... :)
