chrysilla: (clothes)
[personal profile] chrysilla
This is technically a UFO (unfinished object), but I finished it during this challenge thingie so it counts :-P

Made from quilting cotton, but a very nice cotton that I was oogling for a while before it finally went on sale. So very much an impulse buy, oops. But it turned out pretty nice.

I tried this shirt-dress (V8785 B sz 18) once before with linen, my first linen project evar, but at that point in my hobby-ing I didn't know that 'handkerchief linen' would be an awful choice for something with seams and interfacing. Eeek. That is still in the 'give up' bin somewhere.

The shape seemed to work OK *on* me, but I still tried my now-typical waistline adjustment of folding it up about 1.5 inches on the pattern. Tho its a bit different on what I think are dolman sleeves. I skipped the buttons b/c I hate making button holes, and instead used snaps, but the tiny snaps wouldn't hold enough for all that dress. It then took me six months to finally sew on the larger snaps I got, and those seem OK. Still wearing it with leggings and a cami tomorrow, tho.



These pics are actually from several months ago, before I realized the tiny snaps weren't holding, but its still prety much the same. I was a bit messier with the new snaps, oh well. I've also lost some weight since then, will try to get new pics.









So yah, definitely Halloween themed, but will be wearing it for longer than that if the test run tomorrow goes OK. Wheeeee! Tho having just remembered tomorrow I'm getting allergy shots... hmmm, maybe not? Would still rather not bleed on it :-/

Now the Things tally is:
Sewing projects: 5

But at least that's 25% more than last time. Yay?
