I started my bodice outer layer…
Oopsie, I forgot to baste the silk to another layer; it’s not as flimsy as I thought and I was just on a roll and went straight to sewing. I’d hate to rip all that out and weaken the material. Will only 2 layers in the bodice be horrible? I have various weights of cotton for the lining, some quite sturdy. Plus boning.
However, I always bag-line which I know is wrong (it’s just so clean and tidy!). So how am I *supposed* to line this?
Is this where the dreaded piping comes in? Eeeek! Somebody hold me.
If you haven’t guessed by now, I’m going in no linear progression with this costume…
They tell me of my bodice mistake, on our Y!Group
There has to be another way. Pleasepleaseplease tell me there’s something you do about matching up things and basting them together and piping and stuff.
Because unpicking seams will ruin the piece I’ve cut, guarantee it. They’ll be weak, torn, wobbly, frayed, and useless.
I thought flatlining was only to give additional strength to fabrics! Because I flatline and *then* bag-line usually. Flatlining by itself wouldn’t be much of a lining.
*looks for puddle to drown self in*
