They go very fast! Today, four of us managed to get 5 done in about 2 hours. It's a lot of fun! I volunteered to sew all the binding, since I have an industrial machine.
Tonight, I sewed together my 4 pairs of blue bathing suit bottoms. They took me about 2 hours. Cutting is the most time consuming, and I got that all done last weekend.
This is how I feed the clear elastic into my serger. I love it when you rediscover a technique that changes the way you think about sewing. The possibilities are endless!
Seeing as I'm running out of time to get things sewn for Mexico, I decided not to make the reversible knit dress. I'm not sure how long it would take me, but I'm guessing at my speed, it will be at least an 8 hour project. Last weekend, while I was discovering how much fun it is to work with clear elastic, I was inspired to make some racer-back tank tops. I was planning on making some from this pattern anyway, but with the clear elastic method, I won't have to use binding for the neck and armholes. They should whip up very quickly.
I'm not sure how many of these I will manage to get done. I only have part of Sunday and part of Thursday to make 2 blue bathing suit halter tops, and possibly these tank tops. Wish me luck!
In exactly a week, my husband and I will be enjoying the live entertainment at the resort for our first night there! I'm getting excited!!!
