Colette Patterns’ Laurel: Ruffles and necklines. Also, starting the first apron.

These are the millions of threads it’s smart to cut off before attaching the ruffle.  Also, notice the spools of thread on the sewing machine.  I’ve sewn through two spools of thread for the three shirts and I still have two more dresses to go.  Back to the fabric store I went for more thread.
 
A realization I had more than once while working on this project:  It’s time for a new ironing board.  This one tends to randomly collapse.  Plus, I think my loyal readers are a bit tired of looking at the stained floral pattern.
 
But look!  Uniform shirts finished!
 
And we are continuing on to the apron.
 
With my trusty assistant.

  1. Oh, sweetie. Your ironing board randomly collapses? I think the one we had when I was a kid used to do that too. You definitely need a new one. I don't mind the floral pattern though, haha. The shirts look great!

  2. Ha ha! I am realizing that I thought people could see the bias tape and it would be a contrast to the blue. Hee hee, my sewing naivete is so obvious.

    I bought a super delux ironing board a few years ago and I have never regretted it!

  3. As it turns out, the bias tape rolls to the outside a bit so people can see it. I decided to think of it as an intentional thing.
