Elsa Handwork

Today's Slow Sunday Stitching involves hand basting the sleeves onto the Elsa dress.  They have been carefully eased into the arm openings.

The fabric is sheer and a bit slippery on the machine; therefore, I shall baste to hopefully avoid any sleeve puckering (as best I can prior) to machine stitching. Also, I am trying to avoid any possible rip outs or redos.

Reminder to self:  dress is a costume for a five-year old and will not be graded by a home ec teacher.






Hook and eye fastener will be hand sewn for a neat and tidy closure along the neckline. Next step will be a "fitting" prior to hemming.  






Enjoy the rest of your weekend, and I hope you find time for Slow Sunday Stitching with others right HERE.  It's fun!

  3. I don't even *try* to keep track of a paper list! And remember your own rule about the dress not being graded by a home ec teacher!

  5. That looks beautiful! I think sleeves are always the most challenging things to put in.
