Finally, the sewing project I have been waiting for! This is my new baby: And this is the fabric I will be transforming into a piece of clothing. I was going for red brocade, but for whatever reason this is what I came home with:
I don't really have great sewing skills, and the prototype I practiced on turned out all lopsided. I guess the whole thing will be an interesting learning experience if nothing else.
I had so much trouble taking outfit pictures today. One stupid wasp just wouldn't leave me alone, and if there is one thing in nature that I really dislike, it is wasps. I ended up waiving my arms about and rushing back indoors to gather courage to go back outside. For the detail pictures I stayed indoors, which is why the colours look all wrong. Oh well. What can you do.
