Vintage pattern post #4

Posted by Kathleen Fasanella on Apr 7, 2005 at 8:23 pm / Contest and Projects / Trackback

Okay, I sewed up my first dummy of style #24001. I’m referring to my first post of March 21 and the second post of March 30th and the third post of April 5th (this is the fourth, the fifth is here). It didn’t come out too badly but the flange intersecting the neckline is going to be a bit trickier than I imagined. I had cut the flange-stay to match pre-splitting for the tuck but I think a little overcompensation is in order (fabric does that sometimes; that’s why I like leather!). The width of the stay will need to be narrower than it would be before the tuck split. I’ll let you know once I calculate that and you can use it as a starting point but I’m guessing at least 1/2″ and I’m thinking that stay should be fused as well. I’ll shoot photos of what I mean tomorrow or Saturday.

By the way, keyboards make really crappy coffee filters. Don’t ask how I know that.

They’re not much good as tea filters either…. Mine survived after being upended, shaken, and left on a radiator overnight.
