Yes! I've finally 90% done with the Macaron.
All I need to do is press and hem tomorrow!
Here I am below lining up the skirt to the bodice. . .
Here, I actually took the time to line up
and mark the straight lines so that the
waistline is seemingly straight. . .
I am doing a quick lining. Which means lining to the
neck and sleeve line. So to reinforce the neckline and sleeves
I have not only used my lightweight interfacing but also
sewing in some silk ribbon I had bought "just in case" for this
project! It has worked out wonderfully. I also used the silk
ribbon to line invisible zipper to reinforce it.
Of course, every project has its mistakes it seems. Two of mine: I couldn't figure out the lining! For example, my last dress I lined easily - but now I remember that it has a back zipper - this dress has a side zipper. I must have forgot how I did the lining on my other macaron!
And, I made my usual error of cutting a hole in the lining by mistake, so I patched it on the inside with a good luck shamrock - it didn't alter the pattern, thankfully, and it does not show! I have more to report when this is finished . . . . almost done!
Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.
