I've slowly been working on my second M6011. The last time I mentioned it (almost a month ago!) I only had the bodice constructed. I've come a long way since. Check out the progress!
|No, I didn't change the fabric. I am showing the lining side. I am trying -REALLY- hard to make this look super nice on the inside with all finished seams, so I thought all the pictures should reflect that.|
|After I finish sewing the midriff piece, I have to tackle the zipper, then the hem, and I will be set!|
The pattern calls for an invisible zipper. I am not really great at installing invisible zippers, despite the plethora of tutorials on the internet. Luckily (or unluckily) for me, there was no invisible zipper in the correct color for me. The last time I made this dress I had an issue due to its color-blocking (cream on top, but navy for the skirt), but this time I just have one big pattern. I did find a regular zipper that matches pretty well. (color 432: Caribbean blue)
Sunni just hosted another sewalong (I am too timid to try one because I am sure I could never stay on schedule, but I've considered joining one LONG after they are finished), and she has a bunch of excellent links for zipper installations and hems. Check it out here. It's so helpful!
Do you have any projects that are "almost" finished?
