Well, I finally got the three Project Runway patterns in the mail.
The hem isn't finished in the photo. Do you remember me raving about this fabric that I bought before I had the pattern? That's it. I FREAKIN' LOVE IT! It looks like galaxies in space. And the best news of all is that I have about a yard extra so I can use it as a contrast in something else. Win!
This is the pattern:
At the last minute I decided I would cut the flat sleeve (far bottom right) because I've done so many things with puff sleeves lately (not that I don't love them, just needed different). This is by far my favorite of all the vacation sewing I've done. I decided on contrast bows rather than matching bows. I made them with bias tape and don't care what anyone thinks about that! :p
Bow detail & fabric close up:
I think I'll definitely make this again.
Again, forgive the unfinished hem. I think I bought a baby knit. It was with other baby knits but it doesn't really look like one. So whatever, I guess. I forgot to put in the elastic at the waist. I'm still debating whether it needs it or not. I really like how this turned out but I am surprised how low the neckline ended up being.
From this pattern:
I bought this 80s pattern ages ago and just couldn't decided on a fabric. I settled on broadcloth and to be honest I kinda don't really like this. Is it just me? Or is this weird looking? Plus, the neck feels like it's choking me. I'd appreciate your input, positive or negative.
Finally, I made this sweater:
I know it's kinda hard to see because of the black pants. This is way weird The sleeves sit oddly on me and I thought maybe it might be me but on http://sewing.patternreview.com damn near everyone who made this was not happy with it. I wish I would have read that before doing this.
Well that's it folks. I've had a blast sewing this vacation and I hope you've enjoyed everything I've made. :)
