First project in almost 30 years — SOS!
Hello: I’m starting my first sewing project in almost 30 years — the last time I sewed was in early high school — and I’ve decided to make a top for my Mother. It’s got a plain neckline — slightly rounded, sits on the collarbone — is that called a jewel neckline? and long straight sleeves. Simple neck facing, doesn’t look too hard, but again, it’s been almost 30 years. Any hints, tips or suggestions to idiot-proof it?
Once upon a time, I was a decent seamstress — never brilliant but I could put a decent dress or blouse together.
I’m hoping my confidence will come back as I work on this thing, but would really appreciate any ideas.
