Thank you for the comments on the moulage and drafting book posts. It’s nice to know some of you are interested in following along. I posted my moulage in the course too and the feedback from Suzy Furrer was to continue with this moulage for the sloper, only add a little less extra in the waist as there is a bit of space left in the moulage. I plan to make the sloper pattern this weekend.
There are a few ufo’s on my sewing table, two now only require attaching buttons or a snap, this set was a bit more work than that. Not too bad either, a bra only takes me about 3 hours, a set of panties an hour or so. Still… more work than sewing on buttons.
The lace was a gift from my friend Hilde, and it’s been a while since she gave it, must be 2 years. Initially I planned to combine it with either the yellow or the green that’s in the lace but never could find all the notions in matching colours. I decided to use off-white to go with it as that is the edge of the lace and is in the center of the yellow flower too. It’s a happy surprise to me how well this turned out, with hindsight I think the lace wouldn’t pop out so much with another colour.
