Here are a few pics of the dress & romper that we're working on. Both these fabrics are brand new and caught my eye as I was doing one of my weekly "walk-throughs" through the warehouse. Both projects are well under way & should be done by the end of this week.
DressPattern: Simplicity 1804 (ML244255)
Supplies: Scissors or rotary cutter, tape measure, elastic, pins, wonder tape, fusible tricot (ML244260)
Since the salvage rolled, it had to be trimmed off.
The proper needles make all the difference.
Don't forget to iron the pattern before you put it on the fabric. This will make the pattern easier to work with.
Tricot knit fusible interfacing & elastic
Pinning bodice to skirt.
Pinning interfacing to neckline.
RomperPattern: Marcy Tilton V8813
Fabric: ML243985 (cut yards for a size 6)
Supplies: Scissors or rotary cutter, tape measure, pins
Measure the grain line to salvage to make sure it is straight.
Again, iron the pattern to make sure it lays flat on the fabric.
By the end of the week we will have the finished product ready.
