Phoenicia, New Y...
i can’t believe it’s finished. i’m not sure if i lost more nerves or as i’ve been told “made some new connections of my braincells”. anyway, this was a in many ways very frustrating project but i think all the work paid off in the end. this is by far the hardest thing i ever sewed, mostly because of the confusing directions and all the preparation work – there are points labeled a-z on the pattern that all have to be marked (somehow there are a few i didn’t even find out how to use). anyways, while there are a couple of places that don’t look the same on the pictures on the showstudio website (where you can get the pattern for free) i’m very proud and feel like i own a designer garment and it’s probably one of the nicest pieces of clothing that i ever owned.
bedspread my mom gave me from morocco
me for conquering this project, alexander mcqueen for prividing the beautiful pattern, all the people out there on the internet that have made this before me and from whom i got some valuable tips and my husband for living through all my nervous breakdowns!
