The count down is on for Chantel’s packing and it is nerve wracking. Two more decisions to be made: how is she going to get into the dress and will the ‘opening’ be on the side or centre back?
The other thing is - the shape of the bodice along the sleeve edge. I knew there would sleeves so I don’t know why I crocheted the bodice like that. Now the sleeves will take on a whole new shape….
If there is an opening, the only option now would be buttons but that doesn’t seem right for this dress. Another fitting and thank goodness this girl can shimmy into just about anything!
Blocking is important before sewing up the dress. Sequence of blocking before proceeding to the next part: the skirt, the middle, the bodice and the sleeves, added the edging to the hem, then blocked and pressed the edgings.
I love it when a plan comes together!
The big reveal...please Chantel, please send full body pictures!
She wore it so it must be okay?!
