Because I have been moving all the projects around and basically distracting myself from sequins sequins everywhere 🙂 Just got the lovely new bodice out of the WIP and am going to pull it apart! Yep. Going to remove the layers not needed and replace them with more form fitting fabric. After posting "snippet" (cough) from the Modern Dressmaking book about use of sateen for lining, I am just going to go for it 🙂
