|My little helper.|
I've also made the yoke and once I attach it to the skirt then all that is left to do is add the zip and hem it. I feel confident that it won't take me too long... which probably means it will take me another few weeks. I also need to figure out how to attach it as I can't make head nor tail of the instructions. I'll put it down for a day or so and see if the break helps me understand the next step.
I think the skirt might be too loose, too. I'll try it on again tomorrow and see if I need to take in the skirt a little bit more - which means unpicking and sewing all the seams yet again. I tidied the seams on the inside a bit but I still feel like they are super messy. I hope to become neater, once I figure out how.
I tell you what, though, with all the unpicking that I've had to do, it's a good thing we bought a super awesome new vacuum cleaner the other week...I made a huge mess with threads everywhere!
