So folks, you know I love creating illustrations for my patterns. I like that I can make portions transparent to show what’s happening underneath, that there’s no worry about the fabrics being confusing, and that I can make design changes without having to sew and photograph all over (flip-flopped pony ears, anyone?)
All that’s well and good, but there are just some techniques that are easiest to show in real time. The pattern I’m currently working on is a fully lined bodice, but has no closures. I’ve often seen this type of bodice finished with some hand sewing or by turning under the edges and topstitching. But wait… If the shoulder seam is wide enough, there’s a fun little technique that’s quick and easy – just watch!
Pretty slick, right?
I’m hoping to have the Verona Dress ready to start selecting testers in the next few days!
