This was a real touch and go make (much like the last one, just can’t call it until it’s done!). I’m still not totally sold on it. BUT it’s really comfy to wear and easy to make and I loved styling it with chunky boots and tights.
I totally intended for this version to have long sleeves, however, the puzzle of getting those two curves to lie together, in holy matrimony forever and forever…the power eluded me. LOL I cut the facings out of the sleeves and I was happy to salvage the bodice after clipping the curves. I also think I could go up to the larger size. But I’m not fussed.This denim is quite thin and has zero stretch. I think this was the perfect project for it as it’s a bit stiff and would have made one awkward fitted garment.
And I tacked down those unruly facings, too. Why do I still suck at facings????
She is purty but she ain’t comfy. SO ITCHY! That shit has got to GO!
And I was so proud of this top stitching job!
I have another all cut out and ready to go. I have to work while the mojo’s working, or I won’t make another garment for weeks!
My fall wardrobe won’t make itself!
