So I thougth I’d take sequential photos of my latest sewing project: a beach cover for my sis! Here is my sister. Isn’t she cute?
So we talked, and decided to make a beach cover that’s like one she has that is made of terry cloth, but will dry faster.
I bought the fabric (last Friday). I washed it- last 2 days. So today, ready to embark.
So, first need to iron 3 yards of fabric.
Then, do some cleaning.
Do some hard, cold, calculations:
Make some marks for cutting; I use purple crayon.
After a lot of nailbiting, second-guessing, compromises, and re-measuring, finally cut, fold in half and symmetrically cut.
I make boob darts so it’s semi-fitted.
Sew side seams (no photos, sorry) French ones! Nicer. And then, pin the hoodie on the neckline. I like pleats more than gathers.
Sew on bias tape on armholes. You can see the French seams from the hoodie there too.
I’m not really thinking that much ahead- just one or two steps. So now I have the neckline, and hoodie edging to finish with bias tape. I think I’ll go on a run. Good work today, though, and hopefully she’ll like it!
