ball gown #3
Yesterday I finally managed to continue the work on the dress.
I made the sleeves which reach do the elbow and grow wider at the end.
They’re also puffed at the top.
This was the most complicated part. I guess I pinned them about 4 times until I was slightly satisfied but yet not sure if it would work out right.
It’s a quite fiddly procedure but it looks okay… especially for the first time I’ve ever done this
The point that the damask unravels really quick was a double challenge.
Afterwards I cheated a small bridge so that the puffed sleeves don’t hang down. Don’t know if that’s the propper way to do it but it worked for me
Finally… the torso part is done! Sadly I don’t have a dress form yet. That would have made everything way more easy. I don’t know how many pricks I have from testing my pinnings.
