okayyyyyyyy.... anyone have ANY experience with this pattern? i think it might be relatively newish so probly not.
i'm making it for my friend's wedding... and i've run into an instruction i don't understand. for the pleats on the belly, it says to baste/top stitch about 4 inches in from the seam(from dot to dot). okay fine. then it says to pull out only the top pleats's basting stitches. okay again. but then it never says anything about pulling out the rest later.... or going back over with a stronger stitch. can you leave a basting stitch like that in a wedding gown?? wouldn't the weight of the dress eventually pull the stitch out and pleats would fall? so for now, i just have pins holding what should be basted. the more i look at it, the more i think its supposed to have stitches. grrrrr. here's pics of what i got done tonight. never mind the 2 tone muslin mock up. i meant to make the whole thing in tea dyed muslin, but ran out. and i was using 45" muslin instead of the 60" the pattern calls for. hence the weirdness.
