Princess Leia chronicles day 4

So here’s where it starts to get hard. I’m new to this whole thing. I’ve sewn a few things here and there over the years but never seriously. This would be the first time in my life that I’ve done back to back sewing projects.  And for this one I’m wondering if a body form would make things easier. But as I don’t have one of those (maybe one year) I’ll just do without. I’m also still getting back into running and working out. That’s going ok by the way and I’m up to week 3 on the couch to 5k program.  

So the dress is sewn together at the keyhole, the sleeves, the splits and the bottom hem. ( no I haven’t forgotten the keyhole that’s a stage for a little bit later). Now this sounds easy but the sleeves have no seam at the end. Which means they are sown together using an invisible seam. And right now is what I’m trying to figure out.  I understand the concept behind it but I just can’t figure it out. 

So I decided it’s ok if it’s not screen accurate and ended up doing this instead. 

So forgive me. Maybe you can get a better idea of how to do it from this person. This is where I got the pattern and the basic information on how to do it. I was going to link her blog at the end of how I did it. But she’s way better than me.  http://chucrew.com/Leia/dressassembly.html

Don’t worry about what it looks like right now trust me it will look like a Leia by the end of it all. And that’s as far as I got today.
