The dark blue vertical line is where the original seam was. I shifted it out a little as it just balanced a little better that way on me. The two dresses have seams in different places anyway. It is however a good 10cm narrower each side than I originally cut. And the reason it looks like a cotton is because the satin lost so much body when washed (which it needed in order to be decoloured) that I had to back it with a fusible fabric. I used solidot or whatever it is called. A much better option than most but still a little annoying 😉
The pattern is off centre but balanced on the whole. I shall probably add a little more in the way of clouds near the bottom right hem.
So tonight I shall hunt out my pieces of netting and see what is suitable and start sewing the various lines. I may be lucky and not have to do the clouds as well as the rays of sun if the fabric is at all transparent when working it on the frame.
I think I will cut off the top (above where the frame sits) and use the wood to create a pocket for the sides to sit in so I can easily break it down to slide in beside my wardrobe 😉 But hopefully the next photo will show beading happening!
