If my scribble notes don't make sense I will post a photo once the covers are completed (sadly, I got a smudge on the first cover so will have to re-print tomorrow)
Meanwhile the sewing continues on Dress 2 in anticipation of the special zip foot.
If you are interested I found a youtube of a TV ad for the Make it Easy series (from the 80s!!!) which was very important to my sewing 'career'. Seeing this ad and the pages of Volume 1 bring back SO many memories
In my formative early teenage years I started sewing. I only got $2 pocket money so I sacrificed the whole of it to purchase this series. Sadly I threw out the patterns (maybe some of the styles MIGHT come back in fashion!) but still have the index cards. The love of drawing flats and making up wardrobes from these patterns was a favourite pastime...didn't have any money left to buy any fabric!
Later in my early 20s I progressed to Burda magazines and making my own patterns. My skills are not as good as they once were (amazing the things you forget and strangley how it does start coming back to you)
