The cotton lawn got sewn up into a Smock-Like Blouse (SLB) and finished Sunday, and I’m really pleased with it. Not only is the fabric nice and light, the print somehow reminds me of a circus. Send in the clowns! In their SLBs! Wait, they’re already here!
Here’s another SLB. It’s been finished for over a week, but I never got around to a picture until Friday, when I wore it going out. (Not shown: matching red shoes. I tell you, the movie theaters on 3300 South had never seen such shoes.)
Here’s a pocket detail–remember, that’s hand embroidery. I might need a hobby away from my hobby.
Finally, this is the next project (because if I don’t have a project I go straight to the crack cocaine) which is going to be a full-skirted 50’s sun dress. I considered gingham, then decided I would look as if I were wearing a tablecloth. So I went with “circus tent” instead: Trust me, it’s even more orange and striped in person. It’s either going to work very, very, well, or not at all.
