Dispite the fact that I’m fighting a wicked cold, I still managed to sit in front of my new serger yesterday and test out some of it’s functions. Practicing on scrap fabric eventually got old, so I move on to a real project – my Burda hooded t-shirt.
I present to you, my first completed project of 2007:
I’m really happy with the way this top turned out. It’s a nice fit – a semi-fitted style and the fabric is wonderfully soft comfy (I’d model it myself, but I look like Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer at the moment). It’s also very different than anything that’s currently in my wardrobe. I do feel like it looks best when it’s unzipped at least 1/2 way, so I’ll have to wear some sort of tank underneath it as it’s way too revealing, otherwise.
I medicated myself enough to take Taylor to her hair appointment last night. Afterwards, we stopped off at Walmart, where I picked up several yards of the PVC nubuck that Erica used in her Vogue 2932 jacket. I don’t have a project in mind for it at the moment, but I was afraid that if I waited until I did, they would be sold out of it!
