I have finished another project! I'm trying to tackle my Unfinished Things pile and I'm actually getting stuff done!
|My sketch, which looks better in person because the scan doesn't capture the silvery ink.|
|Terribly washed out photo of the sequins.|
And an excellent view of the not at all lined up sleeve-end.
|Yellow cotton sateen pockets. Ick. Why.|
At least they're out of sight.
|Pocket flaps sewn up and the top edges hand stitched closed.|
The lining is awful. Originally the sleeves were lined in the same sateen I used for the pocket bags, but when I picked this up and started working on it again I ripped them out and replaced them with silver-grey bemberg. The rest is lined in plain weave cotton, and I have no clue why I put the dark blue sections on the bottom edge when they should be on the edge by the neckhole where the lining is more likely to actually show.
|No. That is not how to do a facing.|
|All of this is the part that was sewn over a year ago.|
|Ugly, but it's on the inside and it keeps it from bunching up.|
|I think the right pocket is a tiny bit higher than the left one.|
|The left sleeve end is lined up, but not the right one. Boo.|
