Mary's Muslin dress08:00
I've got Mary's muslin dress to show you today. I can't show you photos of the cutting out or construction because it was cut out by the wardrobe mistress from Cardiff, but it's a basic large raglan shape with a channel sewn around the neck. Some elastic is threaded through the neck and tied off long.
Once it's been washed and gone all crinkly, you tighten the elastic, cut it down to size then trim. We've not trimmed it yet, wanted to make sure from the other seamstresses I wasn't cutting it too small for heads to fit through!
(In the next pic I'm smirking at Dus trying to lean far enough back to fit my arms in!)
One item down, millions to go! To read more about the Cwm Cynon Christmas story, check out the website.
