And the 1936 playsuit saga comes to an end…. Thank god! and what a saga it has been. I have been sewing this garment on and off for three weeks now and I am quite happy see the back of it.
It’s been difficult, not a lot difficult, but a little difficult to say the least. There was seam binding, hand sewing, altering, unpicking, altering again, and whats so unsatisfying about the whole affair, is that I’m not entirely certain that I even like it all that much.
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t hate it, the fit is fine, not to mention all the bound seams on the inside are beautiful (I can’t help but smile like a giddy school girl in love when I look at them) But I just don’t see myself wearing it that often.
I suppose after spending that much time on it, I am just disapointed that I’m not absolutely in love with it.
Maybe next summer I will think differently? Hopefully!
