Capt Sharp Looks Sharp
Posted 12 August, 08on:
Thanks to my insomnia, I finished Capt Sharp’s shirt today. As much as he wanted to sew it himself, I am glad I was meanie and said no. It would have taken a very long time to explain each step. He is a fast learner, but the shirt had quite a few tricky details. There was lots and lots and lots of gathering. The effect, however, is quite dramatic.
There is definitely a weird bug going around. C woke up feeling icky today. My neighbor said a few in her house are coming complaining of similar symptoms. Once I finished the shirt, I just sort of lazed around in bed most of the day. I watched a little Olympics, read a little, drank lots of orange juice.
Capt Sharp quickly got over his disappointment about not sewing when he saw the shirt. I have been forgiven. Now that he has made a garment, he has a true appreciation for what goes into making a garment. Oh, and the sign of a truing sewer…. he checked out the seams on the inside. 🙂
