Rapid City, Sout...
Sewing is my procrastination. So much more interesting than reading research papers and writing a research proposal. I bought this fabric when an online fabric store was having a going out of business sale, can’t remember the name of the shop. I wanted to buy 2 yards, but they only had 1 yard in stock and it was too awesome to pass up. So only having 1 yard I’ve been saving it for a while to find a pattern I could squeeze out of it. One of the sleeves is pieced together and I didn’t even try to cut out the facings (used bias tape instead, it’s a better finish anyways). I think it might be a little too loose, but it’s super comfortable and it actually looks better in the pictures than I thought it did in the mirror!
