Well here we are. Nicely accessorized with beach bum hair, Peta pants-into-shorts, and tank top.
See you can wear Chanel with anything.
Tomorrow, when I have recovered from sewing that hem chain in till late at night, I will post some profound thoughts on this experience.
In the meantime here are some pics taken by a photographer who made me laugh because he has been listening to this all week and is just as glad as I am this particular project is in the out basket.
Note my original open slit sleeves. You can do this yourself if you put your vents in backwards and cut them off in a rage at 11:00 p.m..
It's actually pretty easy.
Please tell me if these sleeves look like what they are which is a huge mistake and a tired attempt at a save.
More tomorrow in the words department.
Let me outta here. Got to do a cotton blouse next.
- I am a mother, a new grandmother, and a teacher. But whatever happens in my life, I keep sewing. I have worked as a political communicator and now as a teacher in my formal life. I have also written extensively on sewing. I have been a frequent contributor and contributing editor of Threads magazine and the Australian magazine Dressmaking with Stitches. My first book Sew.. the garment-making book of knowledge will be published in May 2018 and is available for pre-order from Amazon
