A stroke of inspiration hit me this week and you are now gazing upon my newest creation! Some of you have mentioned that you miss seeing my work, and I am doing what I can to remedy that. So, about the pattern: what a pain in the keister! To start off, I shortened it by 4 inches because the pattern pieces just looked so long. I did not include the patch pockets, they just didn’t feel right. Instead I made a tie, since no other closure was apparent. The rest of it wasn’t very difficult, aside from the cuffs (try shoving 3 layers of fleece under YOUR presser foot!). Now lets talk about that fabric. You might not know this, but I suffer from a neigh incurable disease called Silky Fabric Denial Syndrome (SFDS). Common symptoms include underestimating the difficulties of working with silky fabrics, forgetting about the difficulties of working with silky fabrics, and ignoring the difficulties of working with silky fabrics. Please, get yourself tested, as SFDS is a common ailment amongst our kind.
Maybe I’m being a little dramatic, but anyway…I love the finished product, although it is a bit larger than I would have liked. It looks great with skinny jeans and makes me feel glamorous!
