I marked the double wide migoro panel with a safety pin at the back hem. I have to carefully put the garment together making sure that all of the panels are running in the right directions. The brocade is directional. One of the okumi panels will be upside down. I think. I didn’t have enough fabric to flip the panel for cutting. It would have taken almost another 2 yards.
Let’s get my “tedious” list made so I can concentrate. Stress has sapped all my bandwidth.
Mark false back seam. Check.
Mark side seams and sleeve attachments. Done
Mark the okumi attachments. Complete.
Fold and pin false back seam. Done.
Stitch false back seam. Also complete.
Unfold and pin side seams. All set.
Stitch side seams. This is my current place, And I doubt I’ll get through both of them tonight, So I’m just going to copy and paste the rest of the list into tomorrow’s post. Easy Peasy. Though, that does not mean I expect to get all 14 things on that list done tomorrow. Oh no. That would be great, but I don’t sew that fast. Plus I still don’t know quite how I’m doing one of the steps…
