|I recently changed the lightbulb in my sewing room - yay for seeing my stitching, boo for photos.|
|Obviously I mean the purple, not the rainbow.|
|Can you see up my nose? I think you can see up my nose. But at least you can't see my bra strap.|
Oh, I also made the neckband a bit thicker.
|Oh uh, that's a lot of fluff on the front. I have no explanation for that.|
Suzy managed to solve her raglan sleeve wrinkles on her swim suit, so I have hope.
|My 2015 tag. Was going to do a dangly one, but forgot to sew it in before finishing that seam. Oops.|
So, with this Make a Garment a Month thing, there's different themes each month. This month was supposed to be "something new"! Uh, there really isn't anything new about this top, except perhaps the new tags? I was planning on adding a zippered breast pocket, but I liked the clean look of the front so veto'd it. And then I was going to add thumbholes to the cuffs, but after 3 different cuffs and a lot of shouting, I gave up on that too. That crap is not an easy technique (still want to figure it out, but another time).
But I'm alright with not following the themes. I mean, I've joined to encourage me to sew more often, not to follow themes that may not work for my garment needs. If those two line up, then I'll go for it, but if not, I'm not going to worry about it.
|What's with the curls, hair? Maybe it also approves of this top.|
