Garden Path - Blouse - Part IV
Almost, But Not Quite Done
I'm *still* working on the blouse. I thought I'd be done by this point, but reality being what it is, that hasn't happened yet. I am planning to finish it tomorrow morning, and will show it to you again in the final photo shoot.
Here it is, now. I can't put it on my dress form because the dress form shoulders are too large for it to fit over, so the black background will have to do for now.
Continuing with finishing all the seams, both the hem and armholes are bound:
The collar is the one thing I haven't finished - it still needs the facing to be stitched down on the inside, the buttonhole facing to be stitched down and the button sewn on.
I will get to that tomorrow morning very early after my husband leaves for work and before the children get up. That is my favorite time to work on things that need careful attention to very technical details. When you're working on something that you really need to pay attention to, when do you work on it and where? Just curious, let me know in the comments!
Tomorrow: some interesting commentary on the Jacket From Stefan's.
Parting Shot: Napping. I heard something in my studio closet and took a look and found Kiwi napping. She's never been in there before, which I am surprised about, since she's a fabric girl.
Later, I looked in and found her sleeping like this. Yes, she is asleep and did not move at all while I took the picture with flash.
Right now, we have three cats: Kiwi, Pix, and Wellington. The girls get along fairly well, with little spats now and again. Wellington is very independent, very curious and not afraid of anything. Even water doesn't bother him. The girls don't like Wellington, and keep their distance; Kiwi has actually become very clingy and hangs around my ironing board or ledge quite a bit now. Eventually, the girls will probably just tolerate him.
