Weekend project complete. This pretty purple fabric has been staring me in the face from the top shelf of my studio. It's the kind of pretty fabric that I get afraid to cut because I might mess up its prettiness. My fear of cutting pretty fabric comes from two things... 1. I'm not very good at sewing 2. I'm not very good at sewing. I do like experimenting and I LOVE finishing projects. I think this one is a success.
I sewed up the arm holes the first time around and I'll never share how I rigged up the waistband, but all in all it turned out exactly how I imagined. No patterns, no measuring, no finished edges (sorry, mom).
Here's to purple clothes and dinner with friends! Oh, and here's to coffee!
