I wanted to start with a project that was easy, but the finish product looked not-so-simple and Yoshimi’s Gilet was the ideal choice.
This is my first time working with a delicate type of fabric, but I really enjoyed the challenges since it brought a lot of fun and satisfaction.
I used the rolled hem foot to hem the edges which created a minor ruffle-like effect on the horizontal grain lines of the fabric and turned bias binding for the circle, which Yoshimi mentioned in her notes. For the bottom hem, I used the slevage of the fabric. I’m actually 10~12 cm short from the 120 cm length and somehow it still looks ok. And it’s actually a good thing since I’m only 5’1, but the armhole is a bit loose and the length is a tad long. However, I’m very happy with the overall appearance of the finish product, especially the effects of the rolled hem on this type of fabric.
fabric: looks like tulle, but it’s softer and very stretchy on the horizontal grain lines, bobbinet perhaps? I’m still learning the the names of the different types of fabric; thread: natural cotton
