Rethinking clothesApril 30, 2017 / byBarbara / Categories : Feeds
Thanks so much for your responses to the Violet knit jacket. And my apologies to a few people who left wonderful comments that got spam filed and deleted after I read them because I clicked the wrong button by mistake.
You all gave me so much to think about. I am pretty sure I just write this blog just so I can have the pleasure of communicating with you and for the chance to read your interesting comments.
I am going to make another version of that jacket, starting with using a lighter fabric, a ponte, and raising the pockets 1 1/2". Either I have short arms or they have really long ones at Stylearc.
As you all know I have been deep in sewing garments for my book, quirky little units, that you will see when the book is released May 2018. Yes it take time.
But enough of that.
Doing the sewing I am supposed to do as opposed to randomly as I usually operate created a back log in me. So yesterday I went into obsessive mode, something my family specializes in, and cut all day.
I am going to put all these pieces in a laundry basket, set up my machines, and do drive by sewing during the week to see what comes out of this pile:
- one Violet jacket 2.0
- Two cardigans, both different Jalies
- Two pairs of Margaret narrow pants from Stylearc
- Two pairs of Brooklyn knit pants Stylearc and a new pattern/experiment
- Six Jalie T shirts
- Two dresses, both Adeles from Stylearc, one knit one woven ( a cocoon shape and again an out there experiment)
