You knew the only thing that could ride the high of figuring out buttonholes had to be pockets, didn't you? Aw yeah!
Oh, look at me! I'm a working girl with big pockets and a cell phone! I even text these days because I'm so fancy. Again, like every phase of this dress so far, I had a wee bit o' a misstep. This:
...finally and correctly became this after a long while of sewing and subsequent seam ripping:
And then here is how it all comes together. For whatever reason, I would have assumed two clean halves come together to make the pocket panel, but there's a good amount of overlap. Am I the only one fascinated by all the engineering trickery at work in our clothes????
So, here we are! The last third of October begins and I still have a way to go on this dress plus a Halloween project I've bragged about but haven't actually sewn. Whoopsie.
And I know I said skirt domination was coming up, but that was before I understood all the pattern instructions. Coming soon, I swear!
