Well, I am so far behind with the Lady Grey Sew Along that I'm not so much sewing along with, as just lollygagging way behind the pack. Never mind though, I have finally got it cut out! Evidence:
One of the reasons I wanted to do this particular sew along, is the high caliber of Gertie's tailoring tutorials. I've never really done any tailoring, and this is a great opportunity for some free lessons. But I'm clearly way behind on her blog posts. My solution... I'm going to make my own book of Gertie's Tailoring Tips. The first four "chapters":
I'm using both sides of the paper, printing the odd numbered pages, reinserting the paper into my printer, and then printing the even numbers. In an effort to save some trees, I'm not printing all the comments, but if I have any problems with any of the techniques, I'll be sure to go back and review the comment section, too. And of course, you can't "read" the videos, so I'll have to go back and watch those.
First up is the bound buttonholes, and I've made my practice one. More on that tomorrow.
