French Seams: I get it now!

11 Jun

Thanks, Colette!! I now understand French Seams! No More zigzagging the bejeezus out of my ravely fabric seams! You make it look so simple…. Can’t wait to try it out!

Incidentally, I’m going to have to start a spreadsheet or something for my projects (a la Casey) just to keep track of all the inspiring projects out there from you talented sewists! It’s a little overwhelming!

I’ve also figured out my next project — I’m going to make a muslin of the first outfit I made, but this time, I’m going to use some of the pattern-fitting techniques I’ve just learned about. It will be interesting to see how it differs from the original. I also picked up a lovely burgundy linen from Silk Road today — once I get the fit perfected on the muslin, I’ll make it in the linen. It’s a gorgeous drapey soft linen — so excited to work with it!
