More details, fewer headaches. That is how this Violette Field Threads Rosemary felt after my battle with Obstinate Dottie. These pintucks are a first and certainly won’t be a last. Pintucks are one of many details that make me smile and these were a great starter set. The only challenge here was cutting out the front bodice lining. It took four times. Twice I cut a Matilda bodice and then I cut a Rosemary front bodice. Luckily the Rosemary bodice could be laid over the lining bodice and cut with room for a seam, then seamed. It’s an odd mistake to make so many times, but it’s been that kind of week. Finished, this will pair with dottie for all non-birthday spring festivities.
I’d hoped to finish one more project this KCW; either a vintage apron or a VFT Maisie as a engineer’s dress for their trains-themed birthday party. I’m lucky to have accomplished as much as I did, since so much cutting and prep didn’t get done ahead and 4 extra items popped into our schedule. Still today is a perfect day to finish as the weather is balmy and the sun is the shiniest it has been in ages. I hope this seasons KCW and the weather have treated you well and that you’ve had lots of fun.
