Sewing Up a Storm!

Miss Aggie is home for the duration prior to her wedding.  We went nuts buying vintage Butterick and Vogue patterns when they went on sale a couple of weeks ago.  I’ve been practicing and tuning my fitting skills on her.  I saw this pattern  made up on Gertie’s New Blog for Better Sewing and knew that Miss Aggie needed her version of the dress.  Miss Aggie agreed so the project began.  Oh, yes, my Miss Aggie managed to change her measurements since Christmas.  Although according to the pattern she was a 14 in the upper body, her body was swimming in the fabric.  I was able to insert the single lapped zipper in without any basting or ripping out stitches which was amazing.  As soon as Miss Aggie makes her crinoline, I’ll have pictures posted of the work of art.
