Ooh I have named this handmade outfit after one of Alabama Shakes songs, have you heard the album yet? Please say you like it. I’ve been going on and on about it so this is the last you’ll hear about it here, obsessive huh? This weeks theme over at Sew weekly was based around nature [spotlight position too].
My outfit for this week kinda went pear shaped I was so unhappy with the jacket I was making, I got all the way to inserting the sleeves took a step back, and declared it hideous. The construction was working out fine I took it slow being satin and all but that’s where the problem lay, it was satin, and it shone like a beacon; I swear the fabric looked different when I purchased it, anyway it just wasn’t working out so onto step 2 getting the pants finished, Vogue 8738 the same pattern I used for the On-Trend challenge and to start thinking about replacing the top half. Back to Spotlight I go. Not all hope was lost.
I purchased some more of this low-sheen animal print satin and whipped up a kimono, I love the proportions of this outfit, the drape and the tapering around the ankles. I was going for something like this.
I also had big plans to take you to my favourite sanctuary but Hubby (Mr Snaparazzi) was called out to work so these photos were shot in my overgrown fernery running down the side of our house. Just me and my tripod smiling at!? god knows what. Ha! the things you do huh?. I love how it turned out, love the print and as I said the proportions.
So what are you working on at the moment? Do you post it to Instagram too? What’s your username? Mines Kazzthespazz shall we follow one another? I think that would be super fun. Happy Sewing and I hope to have your gorgeous face here next week. In the meantime take a wee look at this super lovely little Sydney band-Ginger and the Ghost, I think I’ve contributed big time to the view count on YouTube. LOVE this song and video.
