I have basted the ribbon trim to the waist of the red dress,I have also prick stitched the zip, the only thing left to do is stitch the hem and stitch the ribbon on the hem! Yay!
It was not all plain sailing, I tried the dress for fit and realised it was way too big around the back of the neck, I had to completely remake the bodice, make the smaller size and do a full bust adjustment! lol
The one thing I did learn about having a dressmaking blog, don't post photos until you have actually finished the garment, otherwise you may keep your readers waiting a year to see the end result!
Prick stitched the zip
I just need to stitch up the hem and trim with ribbon.
Until next time, happy stitching!
