So as I seem to be posting almost every day updates...thought you might be interested in progress. I do amaze myself how much I can hand sew in one evening (approx. 5 1/2 hours). One day I'm going to actually how many meters I can sew per hour.
I managed to sew the waist *twice* (for extra security) after I'd raised it a little.
Bias bound some of the seams and pinned sleeves in place. Now the thing is now I can see that the sleeves when hemmed aren't going to come down long enough. They come to top of my thumb instead on knuckles.
Now wondering how to solve this...should I bias bind the sleeves to keep a bit of length, or find some lace or make a ruffle to go round the bottom of the sleeve. I know I will have to eat wearing the dress so I don't really want stuff that's gonna get in the food when I eat.
In addition having a few shoulder issues...is it normal for it to sit like this?
