Cruise outfit number 1

I began work this morning on my first outfit for the cruise - a black shirtdress. I am not necessarily going to wear it first. I just happened to have black thread on my serger so that is what is getting made first!

The picture posted shows the dress in its early stages. Right now my dress form just looks like a big bat. Tomorrow I will focus on getting the arm holes right and sewing the side seams. If I have time, I am going to get out my sewing manual and see if I can figure out how to do button holes on my machine. I have never done it before so it may take some practice.

I still need to finish the collar, put in the button holes and add buttons, make and add sleeves (long), add a drawstring waist and put in the hem. Quite a few things to do and I want to have it done by the weekend. Not too sure if that will happen!

More outfits and posts to come!
