after finishing the left side seam with zipper last week, I pinned the right side seam
sewed, the later pocket opening only with wide stitching, then I placed the pocket within the front-part
folded it over and sewed it to the seam allowance, then folded it back into the front
then folded the other seam allowance onto the back-side-seam-allowance
and pinned it to the seam allowance
sewed close to the seam
and the opened up the wide stitching
now I pinned and sewed the inseam
and tried it on… looks way to wide in my eyes
already looks better, I only pinned the seams in the waist-part and not at the side seams, because I wanted to avoid to sew the zipper in again – lazy me
then I marked how wide the new darts need to be
and measured how much longer the darts need to be, because I marked with a pin the highest part of my butt when wearing the jumpsuit, thats where the dart should end
and unpicked the seams around the seams and darts that need to be altered
at the top I unpicked the whole part between the marking for the ruffles, so the ruffles will be the same all around
then I drew the new dart in the back and made the smaller one longer to match with the bigger dart and sewed both
and drew a new dart in the front part and sewed
and sewed parallel to the original seams in the waist parts, the same measurement I pinned away
then cut it close to the original seam and ironed the seam allowance apart again
then I pinned the ruffled part at the top again, and sewed
then I sewed the waist-seam again.
already looks much better I think
ok, of to the finishing: hem and lining of the waist-part. So next week will be the last steps of this project.
