Sewing a skirt the Alabama Chanin way with six panels. So far the panels are cut, the stencil has been made and applied. Now the sewing begins. This time I'm going for back stitch with the knots on the outside.... It's going to take a long while!
Panel 1 complete: stencilled, back stitch outline shapes, (knots left on front of fabric) cut interior shapes for reverse appliqué. Only 5 more to go!
This comes along in fits and starts depending on how busy I am, slow, slow, quick, quick, slow. 3 panels now finished.
Picked this up again: 5 panels completed, 1 to go before making up
All the panels are sewn at last, now I'm hand sewing it all together. This is the reverse of one of the panels, almost as lovely as the front
Side seams together. Now deciding whether to top stitch in some way while I wait for the fold over elastic for the waistband to arrive.
