I had a very frustrating sewing day yesterday. In the post, I talked a bit about my habits to get back on track when these things happen. One of the points was to get back on either an easy project, fun project, or whatever, just to get something done right again and walk in the right direction as quickly as possible.
Well, that didn’t take me long! Got two garments done today which I’ll talk about more later.
I’m going to start giving each item I make and design a one word name for quick reference.
The ELRIC office jacket was inspired by something an anime character named Edward Elric wore. You can see from the inset. Mine is nicer, from fake Chinese silks, padded with jersey and lined with anti-static Bemberg lining. Protects me from air conditioning at work. Clasp is coming.
The TOXIC running tights are so named for the skull and crossbones on them. From afar, they may look like polka dots, or flowers nearer, but they’re anything but so tame! Told ya I had some wild stuff in my spandex stash! You should know, though, I start with the stuff I’m willing to part with first in case my skills are sufficient and I lose the fabric in messing up. You wait and see what else is coming!
Now, what will tomorrow hold? 🙂
