Well...now I "sew". Or I at least do the steps it takes to have someone help me sew. I now know how to:
- read a pattern for yardage, measurements/sizes, etc.
- find a pattern
- find fabric that will work with pattern
- tell the different between an invisible zipper and an all-purpose zipper
- tell the different between a 20 in. zipper and a 7 in. zipper (stupid)
- figure out what interfacing is
- choose patterns to fit body shape/type
- read pattern directions
- cut out pattern pieces
- iron out pattern pieces on a temperature where the paper just flattens and doesn't burn
- mark fabric
- pin patterns
- cut out fabric with pattern pieces laid out WITH the grain
The costumes are for "Seasons of Love". One is for "Grease" (blue skirt), and the other is for "West Side Story"/pre-show character (purple dress). I'm scared I've screwed them both up, but hopefully I didn't.
In short, I don't sew. BUT now I do the other stuff. Woot. :P
