What week is it? What’s going on in my life? I think I need an organizational calendar.
Ok so I completed the project last week but didn’t post is. Shucks. Actually, no, that’s a lie, I finished all of it, but the hemming. Which I did today, after I took photos, of course. Lets just blame the fact that it’s never really sunny in San Francisco and it’s hard to talk photos in “natural light.”
- Week: Two? – Jasmine from Colette Patterns
- Started: January 12th
- Completed: January 23th
- Percent done before 2012: 0!
- Point: 1 (I’m still giving myself a point, even though it’s late)
Isn’t she pretty? I bought the fabric with my mom when I was back home in the fall. There’s this wonderful store called Fabric of Vision in Ashland, Or. that I make sure to visit whenever possible. The owner has the best taste.
I loooove Colette Patterns. The only thing I modified on this top was to make the ties a bit longer. I added about a foot in length to each tie, I like the bigger bow look. I’ll defiantly make this top again, but I might change the sleeves up a bit.
The back is a little wanky, I wish I had tried to line up the pattern a little better. I didn’t really think about it, sometimes I’m far to interested in make sure to have as much left over fabric as possible then to deal with a silly thing like pattern placement. Like, what am I possibly going to do with that left over fabric? Oh vell.
I think I’ll wear this to work tomorrow.
