Which is kind of where I’m at now. My Trash2Trends project is turning out so well I can hardly believe it. There are a few glitches and modifications, but it’s not causing me half as much grief putting it together as I thought it would. The mat material slides through the machine easy enough, I haven’t had my leather needles break, and the stitching is holding together. I am running out of thread though. I can hit the store tomorrow for a supply trip.
And my model is stoked to participate and we’ve had 2 fittings so far and it is fitting together very nicely.
Now it is on to the bodice. That may be tricky. Since this is a strapless piece, I need to make sure that the bodice isn’t going to “fall open” at any time. (My model is wearing a camisole underneath so she’s covered, nevertheless, I want to make sure it comes together without any wardrobe malfunctions).
The hat may be something else too.
One week to go!
