Project Wedding Dress is Underway

Project wedding dress is underway. I spent about an hour on Sunday just fusing the interfacing to the pieces and spent another hour today finishing them up. That's right. It took me about two hours to cut the interfacing and fuse it to all the pieces. Not a task for somebody in a hurry. Here's a closeup of my fabric.

During the interfacing phase I also cut the beads out of the seam allowance of all of the pieces. Don't want to risk any skip stitches or needle breaks.


So far I've got the straps and the upper bodice pieces finished. It's coming along nicely but I do have some concerns about the overlay pieces. My mind is also racing on quick fixes if I need to go in another direction.


I didn't make a muslin and now I'm wondering if I did enough of an FBA. I cut the size 20 so that I can pinfit to size.


This is what the bodice looks like so far


If I keep at it I may be done tomorrow!
