Description

It used to be a scarf. Few things that I changed: didn’t make slits and sleeve vents.

    Absolutely beautiful and SO inspirational. Did you widen the sleeve a bit at the cuff per chance? Looks a bit fuller than other posted projects using same pattern.

      Thank You :) Actually I’m glad You mentioned that because that was my purpose. The answer though is no, I did’t widen it. I did’t make sleeve vents :)

    This is the first time I have commented on anything because I am seriously impressed with your creativity, your ability to see something others miss, your use of the scarf’sprint with the pattern design, and your skill in bringing out the right colour to compliment the blouse. I love the whole outfit and can see your artistic style. Bravo!

      I hope I will be able to express myself in English well enough. Most importantly, I want to say that I really appreciate Your comment and Your thoughts.

      Sometimes when we are small we get used to being comforted for the effort. Growing you realize that in real life it’s not always effort that counts but the result. Being 28 years old I already now that sometimes even your maximum is not enough.

      When I first tried sewing (I got my sewing machine last Christmas) I found out that I don’t have all tools needed (and I don’t mean thread :) ). I started watching youtube tutorials and any lessons I could find. This shirt was the first project that I felt I new how I wanted it to be, the first one that I felt I had enough tools to make it and I can add or create during the process.

      That’s why I respect and honor people taking time to see where I put effort in. It tells me that my maximum for today is good (though a bit too small for tomorrow :)

      Wishing You all the best,
      Kristina

      Thank You. And using a scarf was a challenge. I have NO material left at all :) Used the last pieces to make a belt :)

    Great use of the scarf – love how you have used the edges of the scarf in the ruffle and at the seams.
