I Have A Dilemma
However, before I tell you about my dilemma, let me show you something that makes me a little more happy.
Before our camping trip, I decided that I desperately needed some long sleeve tee shirts. While my need was there, I doubt in hindsight that I needed them desperately. I rapidly cut out several in flurry of activity and made them all up. This is where my happy accident occurred. The orange and black tee was cut using narrow striped fabric before I realised I actually had the same fabric in a wider width in my collection. I rapidly changed my mind and decided it was necessary to combine the two different width stripes into one tee which is why I have a short sleeved version as well. All of these fabrics were purchased at Cotura Fashions end of season sale. Let me tell you though, it was quite a wrench to use any of these fabrics because they were all in 2m lengths and I really hate to cut into a long length for something as small as a tee shirt but at the end of the day, how many dresses do I need right?
Once again I used Jalie 3352 and the neckline of Tessuti Alexa and I squared off the hem. The fabrics were all different weights so some required running in to get the desired fit.
I finished all of the tees with cover stitched hems and sleeve hems.
Oh and one last photo with Mt Cook in the distance!
I don't usually discuss my current projects before they are complete but this one I am finding completely bothersome. I am currently part way through completing a Style Arc Ziggi Jacket in leather no less. Because the leather is quite light, I have interlined it with flannel. The problem arose when I had just completed the sleeves. I have managed, and I have no idea how, to put the sleeve zips on the inside seam of the sleeves instead of the outside seam . What to do? Do I spend hours remaking the sleeves and waste more leather or do I just accept my mistake as a design feature and try to build a bridge? What would you do?
