The unexpected challenge of Simplicity 5728 so far has been the point where the midriff comes up between the two pieces of the bodices. In my sewing naivete, it didn’t occur to me that sewing a pointed seam where three pieces meet might be kind of tricky. More advanced sewers probably think this is easy, but I have to admit I’m really struggling with it.
After watching a few videos (including quilting videos!) on YouTube, and sewing a few practice pieces, I think I might finally have gotten the hang of it. Here are my attempts, from worst to best. I forgot to take a picture of the back, but I’ve captioned them with a description of what I did:
A young librarian. I am in love with libraries, books and words. Other hobbies include knitting, drinking tea, finding cats to pet and listening to music.
I'm learning to be braver in the kitchen, and am gradually making my way toward making proper recipes. At the moment, it's pure experimentation. I am a bit better at following instructions when it comes to knitting, embroidering and sewing!
