Taming of the Stripes
Posted 27 November, 05on:
This fabric refused to be tamed. The perfectionist in me wants stripes to match *exactly* at every seam. I took a deep breath and the advice of some good friends….let it go. This shirt will be outgrown in a matter of months. It will be worn to school where no one will examine the seams. Once I stopped hyperventilating and began cutting, I noticed the twist of the fabric was not as bad as originally thought. There wasn’t enough to make long sleeves, so I added some black for that layered look. The pattern is Ottobre Winter ’05 #20…which is quickly becoming a favorite.
