I bring before you a delightful little number that I am quite pleased with. This was Addie's first big job, not just as a draping area but as an actual indicator of fit!
Let's take a look:
|Before: A nice little black linen shirt which was a) too big and b) a sad, shapeless sack (say that 5x fast). I like the front seams and the ties, and also that it can fit in at the office.|
|Standard 'flip inside out and pin'. Addie made this part SO much easier!!|
|More shapely already!|
|Er... A little too shapely. The line I am pointing at is the looser line that I ended up going with, once I discovered I had made the arms too tight.|
|It fit now but what to do... It was a little *too* plain. I didn't want to compete with the detailing, nor make it all crazy and ruin the ability to wear it to work. So I thought about it.... And this is what I came up with...|
|Tah dah! Want a closer look?|
|#30 on my machine embroiders these little star/snowflake/daisy shapes! I sewed them on the collar and side ties|
|It's cute, but isn't too much!|
|I LOVE THIS!|
Happy 3 day weekend to the Labor Day peeps out there! Hope you can get some sewing in!
