|Inside, back. The midriff lining being slip stitched down.|
Here's the progress I made today :) As you can see I've sewn and attached the skirt. It was a pain trying to keep the midriff lining out of the way and avoiding pins at the same time! I got there in the end. I also stayed the midriff/skirt seam with more selvedge tape. I also stayed the midriff piece that will have the zip sewn to it. I have enough trouble with zips, without having to contend with pieces on the bias! lol
As you can see from the last photo, I'm now in at the stage of slip stitching the midriff lining down over the seams. I've gotten about 6 inches in, then decided to finish for today. I think I'll work on Dom's second sock, I think he's tired of waiting :)
The next stage will be top stitching the midriff pieces, though I'm not sure it I will. The pieces are so small because of my short waist, and I don't want to emphasise them and draw attention to them. What do you think?
Look out for a giveaway tomorrow!! :D
