It was fun to make but I was not happy with it. So I added sashiko, also fun. But then I wore it. Those side panels created a decidedly unattractive silhouette. And then there was that chest pocket. I put my phone in there and immediately removed it.
|Changes are a bit subtle, hey?|
So I went to work on it, first removing the ugly side panels. That improved it a great deal, so I moved the pocket too. Now I'm wearing it, but it was not a terribly satisfying make. On the bright side, it is very light weight and soft, great for our hot steamy weather.
And I will use this pocket.
Then I started a rather complicated jacket, the All About Details from Cutting Line Designs. My initial efforts stimulated a creativity sink hole. This was due entirely to mistakes I made. I think I've rounded the corner on that piece and hope to blog about it soon.
Meanwhile a little slow sewing:
I hope that your July sewing is satisfying and stimulating, in a good way.
