My first problem was that my trusty walking foot snagged the delicate fabric. Thank goodness this was the wrong side!
Then I had to deal with a stroppy sewing machine with tension issues.
When the tension was finally acceptable, I had to double pin everything to stop the layers shifting. Below is the bodice lining. I have used a very soft quilting cotton so it will feel nice next to my daughter's skin. This was my first time using boning and it went pretty smoothly - thank you Google and YouTube! I had to make some fit adjustments to the bodice when my daughter came home from school but nothing too major. Tomorrow I will finish up the sleeves and put the bodice together. Hopefully I can make some good progress on the skirt too. More tomorrow!
