( I thought you might not like to be called honey everytime...)
When I started my newest project
onion3023 view b I thought I might make a step by step tutorial/instruction sheet, but I forgot to make a couple of pictures or they are soooo blurry, that you can't see anything, but I write down what I made nevertheless.
these are my fabrics
a white cotton with red embroidery paisley motiv and a
dark blue cotton satin from my stash.
All in all I used just over a meter of fabric. I guess 1,20 meter.
I started with a size 40, which corresponds with my waist measurement.
I copied the pattern and added s.a. and then I cut out the fabric ( no pic of that, I thought that was self explaining)
First step sewing wise was pinning the lower border ( out of the white fabric ) to the dark blue fabric

Sew the pinned seam and press.
My order when pressing is
Pressing from one side
Flip over and press from the other side
Normally I would press the s.a. open now ( first with finger pressing and then with the iron ) but with my very thin white fabric every s.a. shows thru, so I opted for pressing it towards the blue fabric
o.k. blogger does not want me to upload more pictures today, so I guess I'll close here for now and will edit the entry tomorrow
Just one hint. The pattern is pattern of the month at the moment at my Onionpatterndealer Maria ( see my linklist ), you get a 15% discount :)
