...about sewing/dressmaking/costume making for me is cutting out the pattern. I am NOT very patient but the laying out, pinning, and cutting out of a pattern makes all the difference in the finished product. So... I decided to cut out the robot costume-to-be yesterday between laundry and housework.
The fabric is slippery-slidey so extra care needed to be taken when smoothing out both the fabric and the pattern pieces.
The body of the top needed to be placed on the fold and... to save fabric.... I refolded the fabric so the selvedges met in the center.
I had to take breaks because bending over the table to pin down the pattern pieces was not appreciated by my lower back. However, the costume is cut out.... I'll tackle the sewing after work this week.
