I have a new battery charger. Yippee!
I am working on the evening gown. Today I applied the trim to the bodice, attached the bodice lining and the skirt. I am very pleased with the look. I will be finished soon since all that remains is installing the zipper and skirt lining and finishing the hem. This project has been fun and I need to keep the fun going, so I need to start thinking about the next project.
A quick note about attaching the trim, please take a few minutes to hand baste it in place. It takes less time than picking out machine stitches. I baste the trim in place and then do a row of machine basting using a long machine stitch. I remove the hand basting and continue with the garment construction without worrying about the trim shifting. It may seem like extra work, but it’s worth the results.
