|Can you see the lovely side panel?|
It curves from halfway to center back up under the arm to a princess seam
|There's a center back zip |
(which I don't use in this version, but I am sure I will need in a leather version)
The fabric is gorgeous - some kind of batik on a plaid cotton
Here is my first version: made in a cotton lawn - I put this one up at the store - I made an identical one for myself by the invisible zipper ate the lawn on my first zip - I immediately went out an bought a proper invisible zipper foot. These shots show the design lines nicely.
|the curved side panel shows up well on this shot|
So - what else have I sewn?
I made a BBQ shirt for my DH using the bits from a shirt we ordered online (apparently an XXL for a child)
-I think the main fabric is a Kaufman Interweave chambray (pepper? I think) - I bought a remnant.
My friend gifted me some crazy poly-knit, I love it! So I made (another) Lisbon Cardigan
Here's another one I didn't blog from May (apparently that was my last haircut!):
I made a Plantain Tee out of a gorgeous Rayon jersey from my Nature's Fabrics prize pack
Today I will finish this dress. I totally messed with a woven pattern to make a knit version of view C
phew! two weeks of holidays, then I will tackle the leather shell - do you think denim will make a good test run?
