Silk...I'm in trouble!
I got 2.5 hours uninterrupted sewing time today. "Sweet, I can probably get a good start on the bodice,"...bwa ha ha. I did not even finish step ONE: lay the contrast fabric (lace) down on the bodice pieces and sew them together so they are one piece from here on out. My first try I got hideous bunching. "ruh roh."
In order to accomplish this step, I have to pin about an inch apart...and it's still not bunch-free. Good thing for that seam allowance, because the lace is horribly askew by the time I'm done with a piece. This is the first time I think I really understand what I've gotten myself into. Wedding in one month: aaaaaand start getting nervous.
On a lighter note:
(Don't panic, that's the lining fabric she's loving on)
