Bodice update

It’s a rainy windy day due to “Beryl”, so I was working on my linen dress. I really enjoy making tucks and wanted to incorporate them into my wardrobe.

I created the tucks very quickly this morning using the same techniques as posted here:  https://thethriftyneedle.wordpress.com/2012/04/13/tucker-foot/

 If you can’t see my settings for these tucks  they are: Front (distance between tucks) 4  and the Back (how deep the tucks are) is a 3.

I wanted to work more on drafting pockets into the skirt in a cleaver way, but this happened: apparently one of the bans of beryl at the end of this storm gave us a punch and we lost this huge maple tree in the front side yard. We also lost power a couple of times, so I turned off all machines… Ugh… now I have a mess in the yard to clean up, and I’m sad about my tree.
