This year I’m sewing along with Gertie from Gertie’s New Blog for Better Sewing. A bunch of other talented seamsters and I have joined up through the Craftsy online community to make perfectly fitted bombshell dresses. Here’s a reflection on my efforts to sew well.
My first, and only, post about the Sew Retro: Perfect Fit Bombshell Dress Craftsy class was July 18, 2011. Though I watched all of the class videos and have used many of the techniques while constructing subsequent garments, I never made any progress on the actual dress.
Six months later.
In an effort to finish up the class, I’m going to aim to do a lesson a week, posting my progress in a Tuesdays with Gertie series. There are fifteen lessons in total, so I should be able to have my dress before the end of the SWAP and before wedding season starts up.
Lesson one: get your supplies. I actually picked up my supplies months ago when I thought I was going to finish this class in the summer.
That was easy.
