my green dress is coming together and is starting to look like a dress, I hope the warm weather stays, so I can take it out soon.
I pinned the cuffs to the sleeves
and the collar stands to the collar, both at the same time, to each side of the collar
I also pinned the centre back
and the right side seam
In the left side seam I also put one of the ribbons
then sewed and serged the centre back seam and side seams
sewed the collar stands and cut the seam allowance short at the corner
sewed the cuffs to the sleeves and ironed the seam allowance into the cuffs
folded the collar stand over and ironed it
next I pinned, sewed and serged my shoulder seams
now I pinned my top sleeve seam and sewed it
just stopped shortly before the seam
now I folded the cuff inside and the seam allowance down and pinned the side seam of the cuff on each side
then sewed the 2 seams
now turned the right side out, folded the cuff inside, and pin the inner seam allowance into the cuff
then sewed all around in the original seam, I did sew back and forth over the slit, to prevent any ripping
next I pinned the ribbon and the collar to the markings onto the right side of the bodice
then pinned my facing on top of it
sewed it and serged it, as well as the open edge of the facing, then folded the facing over and inside the bodice and ironed it
my almost finished top part of the dress so far.
