I needed some sleepwear so I sewed 3. These were really easy and the patterns are from a Japanese book translated to Mandarin. I don't know both. That's the thing about these Japanese books, the illustrations are excellent.
|The bodice had ruffles on the front of the original dress|
|Mine ... sans ruffles|
|Another similar to the above|
|In front is a sleeveless top also from the same book. The other is my client's A-Line skirt in the making|
|Her selection of fabrics for the shell and lining. Did not need to use the satin bias tape after all|
|Invisible zip construction. Lots of pining, hand basting and then sewing|
|It is now finished and sent out to my client. I added a little card with some info|
I am recording all my sewing of garments with snippets of fabrics used and adjustments done on the main pattern. And I slip these notes into the pattern envelope. Gosh ... I don't know where all these organizational genius is coming from!
|Drafting the pants pattern|
|Toile of my pants with the tailor tacks still intact|
|All this little gem needs now is some binding love|
|Still quilting ...|
