My interfacing arrived, and so I was able to make some progress on my shirt dress tonight – and I love it so far, even though it’s not even a little bit close to wearing it!
Gathering stitches on the bodice back. Believe it or not, for all my years of sewing, I only recently truly learned to do gathers correctly and evenly. It was one of those things that I didn’t think mattered all that much… until I learned the proper technique and realized it matters a whole lot!
The yolk facing pinned and waiting to be slipstiched, which is where I leave this for the time being. I made a lot of good progress in a small amount of time, but I want to go slow and steady and create something I can actually wear with pride, and that fits well.
