THE WEDDING IS SATURDAY and TODAY IS THE LAST DAY I HAVE TO SEW THE CHIFFON JACKET…..
(I work 47-49 hrs. per week – that is partly why I’m late with this project.)
I thought I’d figured out what I needed to do, but apparently my plans aren’t working out. My muslin went together fine – it wasn’t chiffon.
What I have found out by experimenting with scraps is that my serger works best for the seams. That was fine until I went to assemble things and went to stay stitch the neckline and princess seam area. That seemed to have shrunk the fabric along those lines because when I have attempted to pin the side piece in place (and had clipped the fabric to the stay stitching), there is no way that the two will go together with the side piece seeming to be much longer than the center piece. (doing the back first). I fault the stay stitching of the back center piece for shrinking this.
If anyone has any suggestions, please advise ASAP.
(If I don’t get the jacket together, then I’ll wear the dress without. <sigh>)
