more wendy! more!
this one doesn't gape so much, and i made the back a little narrower. i deliberately cut the facing in the opposite direction to the body. only problem? i cut one piece upside down (the stripes have two narrow line to one side of a wider one, so it shows). couldn't be bothered to recut, so just left it. i feel very lazy in retrospect. but i got the stripes in the bust and the lower body to match up! i am so couture!
you can't really see it, but the binding is tartan. i was going to make tartan covered buttons for the trim, but the shanks on my self-covering buttons are really long, and when sewn to the top they sag, and don't look very nice. you can see the bottom one sadly drooping there. so I'm a bit stuck for a trim right now. Maybe I'll just put a brooch on it. i have a cute little silver swirly leaf brooch that fits perfectly.
aside, are you american? want to help me out? want fabulous australian goodies? go check out my desperate plea for a(nother) BBW pattern.
next stop? i'm so close to finishing anatolia i can taste in (mmm... woolly!)
then i'm going to make a cowboy shirt out of that brown-ish kind of checked fabric below.
