I finished cutting the pieces out last night (yay!), and started binding the raw edges this morning. Here’s a photo:
If you look close up, you’ll see the basting lines. I hand-basted the organza underlining to this piece before putting on the edge finish, which is Seams Great (a sheer bias tape) rolled over the edge.
Here’s a closer view, where the Seams Great is more visible:
I’ve run out of Seams Great now, so until I have a chance to go to the fabric store (probably over lunchtime), I’m going to weave some more. I’m now at the 16.5 yard mark in total yards woven, but I’d like to weave another yard or two before cutting off and wet-finishing the second piece.
If all goes well, I’ll be (drum roll please) sewing the outer part of the dress tomorrow morning!
