to grade the pattern pieces down a size. Makes my head hurt. Lots of un-sewing.
A good week later and it's coming together! Today I hope to get the sleeves in and then on to hems and fasteners. One time suck has been the Hong Kong seams--that wonderful satin bias tape turned out to be a bit wonkey, going from wide to narrow and back again. I think it was the end of a roll because I went back on Saturday to get more (15 meters and counting!!! --some due to all the un-sewing) and it was off a new roll and much better to work with.

|I think these clip fasteners are going to be perfect!|
|My creation. Think I'll stick with sewing ;)|
