4-H Sewing: Front and back sewn!
Anna, with my help, has been working slowly on her 4-H sewing project - one 90-minute session each weekend, plus a short session mid-week (to do simple things like zigzagging the edges of seam allowances). This pattern (she's sewing View A) is marked as "Easy" by McCall's, but it's challenging for Anna! So far she's learned how to do curved seams (with clipping and notching included) and gathering.
The ruffled detail on the front, along with the two princess seams, are done. This weekend she created decorative ties for the back, and finished the two curved seams on the back of the garment.
On tap next week: Sewing the shoulders and side seams to connect the front and back, and gathering the sleeves/finishing sleeve edges to prepare for sewing them onto the blouse. There's plenty of "trickiness" ahead with the collar and the front band...and her first buttonholes. The project needs to be completed by the end of the third week in June.
