Well wow, I needed that! I had a couple projects now on which I felt a bit disappointed with myself afterwards. It was just little things in the execution that left me somewhat underwhelmed (I always wanted to use that word!). It’s not surprising, if you start making your own patterns, somehow you have to improvise here and there, which is exactly where precision gets lost.
I improvised and made this shirt up top to bottom and still managed to keep my execution really clean. On top of that, I used my serger successfully in lots of places. There is hope! :-)
This top is again part of my long big project: a ten piece fall/winter/spring travel set. I am almost finished now, just in time for summer, har har.
