|Seven bags, ten apiece.|
The hemming is done, the dresses have been taken to the client. Let's open a cold one (a caffeinated sugared up one for me) and review the mayhem.
These babies were like evil drunks, who come and wreck the party. A standard example:
|Skirt goes one way, then another|
I had to hang them up on a curtain rod over the grid board to get a good gander at them.
|Yes, that hem is just that wavy|
After pulling the hem, I redid the two skirts. The taffeta one was well behaved and I could just measure it on the table, but the chiffon overlayer had a mind of it's own. Since the skirt was cut with a wide bias on the sides, it needed to be marked while hung up (see previous post) and then wrassled on the ironing board.
|All pinned out on the ironing board|
To get the hem to lie straight required a lot of restraining it, a lot of ironing and a fair amount of profanity.
And now they're done. Just in time for holiday gift sewing.
