After spending Wednesday cutting out my pattern pieces for y Huntsman dress and overlocking them all I was able to spend today manufacturing.
I started to construct the dress by first putting the front together.
Then I inserted the invisible zip into the back which is where I had my first problem as I twisted the zip so I was unable to do it up after both sides were attached. To fix this I unpicked it and attached it again. IK then finished the back.
Next I created the side pieces keeping the fronts and the backs separate.
I then inserted them into the front and the back to create two full pieces
I then inserted the side seams.
And the shoulder seams.
I am really pleased with the silhouette of the dress and I feel that it really flatters the figure.
Next I attached the loops of ribbon that the chain will attach to, to the facing. I had a few problems with this as I attached them to the wrong side of the dress.
Next I attached the facings to the linings.
Then I was able to insert the side seams
I am really pleased that I have been able to complete this garment today as much as I can before fittings week and I will be able to focus on another garment tomorrow.
