I thought it is about time to give you an update on my sewing game against my boyfriend (Sport Vs Sewing).
Well I need to confess – I have had no chanse in hell, to stand up to his television sports with my sewing.
First I had the big Opera 1880s gown to finish in january, making me decide to post-pone the game a month, to february – which turned out to be even more filled with sport (Olympic games anyone). And between some comissions and the HSF14 I really stuggeled to get enything done on the “Sports Anglaise”.
So while the Olympics hockey games played on our television I finaly grabbed myself and got to work.
Putting my 18th century corset, bumroll and petticoat on my dressform, I started to drape a pattern.
As usual it needed some changes. Like taking out about 6cm in the shoulder straps, and adding about 3 cm in lenght to the waist. I also needed to re-adjust the center back seam to get a nice and smooth line.
Tally: 2 hockey games = draping a pattern, making a mock-up, cutting the fabric and pinning the pieces togheter.
