I wanted to do the introductory post and put up the schedule of posts that I wanted to do. Obviously, you can work faster and/or slower than me. I just wanted to do a series of detailed posts of what I do when I make this dress. The posts would be directed to the "advanced-beginners". Why? Because I think that everyone should make and wear this dress all the time. :P I also wanted these posts as a great place for beginner sewists to look at when they make this dress. Also, since this will be my third time sewing it, I have picked up a couple tricks.
So, here is the schedule:
February 6: Tracing
February 7: Muslin
February 9: Cutting out, interfacing, staystitching, collar
February 11: Bodice Darts and skirt
February 12: Shirring
February 13: Pockets and side seams
February 14: Side Seams
February 15: Sleeves
February 16: Collar/Facing
February 17: Buttonholes/hem, handstitching/buttons
February 18: Final dress!!
So, if you guys follow along, awesome and I would love to see your finished projects! I set up a flickr account to make it easy to share, but also email me (email@example.com) pictures! I would love to post like a round-up.
I'm super excited!
