|My dear one had just arisen from a nap so I'll leave his sleepyface off the interwebs|
|It really hurt my brain to figure out this alteration, which seems so simple|
I used the Japanese cotton lawn. Andy expressed grave concern over its floral-ness at first but I think he's coming around now it's taking shape.
I am learning so much from the sewalong. There's helpful advice from Peter and other participants, learning by looking at the photos and notes of others on Flickr, and simply the trial and error of ploughing through it all at home. I'm thrilled to be getting the hang of sleeve plackets and edge-stitching:
|I have been using my zipper foot to allow me to do a far more accurate and narrow edge-stitch|
|The instructions have you make the outer cuff side 1/8 inch shorter than the inner when it should be that much longer, in order to cover the stitching you see here|
I need to put buttons on this shirt and hem it. I would also like to figure out what's going on with the creases running from shoulder to under the arm.
|I am becoming more and more fond of this faux-Liberty lawn as I go along|
