Sewing up the sides

I’m almost finished, I suspect this week will be the last and on the weekend I’ll just be touching things up. I know this is an odd angle but I’m still basting the right-side seam.

The size I went with was (10) not just because I’m a size (10) but for this pattern it was just a tad too small which I thought would be good since it was a stretch fabric.

I’ve basted by hand the outside of the dress before I make the final stitching of the side seams. This is because I have to fit the wrap dress to my figure first and make any adjustments.

I’m very please with the gathers at the left side-seam, I may have to adjust the gathers if I have to take the dress in more than I expect, we’ll see. Next after the side-seam will be the short sleeves and hemming.

Well this post was short and sweet, I’ll be getting back to sewing now.

Question: I don’t have a lot of experience with stretch fabric, so any last-minute advice would be appreciated.

God Bless & Sew On

Thank you,

Jennifer
