Only two more to go!
BFF is experiencing car troubles, so couldn't make it today. Will have to either pick up her serger or go visit & get some serging done. Sooner, rather than later, by the looks of it.
It's now taking me 2.5 hours to sew together a tier - the blue & the purple both took about that long.
I think I will tackle the last tier next. Not because I love pink (which I do!), but just to get that one out of the way. I was thinking of tackling the hem, but I can't do that until I serge it all...
Also, I'm pretty sure my machine came with a gathering foot...I might give that a try, instead of hand-gathering each tier. I wish I had a ruffler foot :(
