A few months ago I posted I was off to a French themed party… Sadly the party was postponed until further notice but I went ahead and played with French costume ideas anyway!
Lo and behold my satin magenta french knickers!
Don’t they look neat (*ahem* don’t look too closely!). However what the picture doesn’t show is that I can’t even get them past my knees.
Something went disastrously wrong with my pattern drafting skills! Perhaps it was the lack of them that did it. To make matters even more embarrassing for my so-called abilities, I can’t even get these onto my size 6 torso mannequin!
My skills with sewing satin also leave something to be desired. This is something I’ll have to research before I try these again. I’ll be sure to share when I do!
If you’ve been sewing for a while, I’d love to hear what are your best tips for sewing satin?
Stay encouraged 🙂
