If you read my post yesterday you would have read that today’s job was making a toile off the Sewaholic Cambie dress. My sewing day got halved, as usual, life happens! But this afternoon I cut out my calico and started sewing.
A couple of hours later and the toile is complete! Although I crossed my fingers and toes, not surprisingly, it doesn’t fit!! The good news… It’s way too big so plenty of room for alterations. The bad news…. Where do I start?! It’s easy to pinch a bunch of fabric in and say ta-da! It fits! But we all know that’s not the proper way, and my dress would look like a monstrosity with seams all over the place.
So any tips for modifying a toile by yourself? The painful process of getting in and out of a dress whilst trying to avoid being stabbed by pins doesn’t sound like a Saturday night job to me. The wine in the fridge is calling! But I can’t let this be another dress that never gets finished. Tomorrow… I’ll battle the toile.
