|I call this “Stripe Matching Like A Boss”|
The only “downside” of this pattern, such that it is, is that if you used striped fabric you’re not going to be able to get a perfect stripe across the slightly curved waistline or hemline, no matter how hard you try. But let’s face it, only sewists would ever notice such a thing and I now think of it as my advanced technology “sewist identification device” (SID): if I see anyone curiously staring at the top of my skirt, I’ll be sure to introduce myself and strike up a conversation about underlining techniques.
And so, my mini-summer-wardrobe will now get packed into a box and put in the top of my wardrobe until the snow mountains disappear from Boston. They’re taking bets on when that will be. But it does mean that I can get on with finishing (ok: starting) my Cascade Duffel coat, which will be eminently more useful for a couple of months.
Do you enjoy sewing out of season outfits? Do you get slightly over excited at the prospect of vacations and proceed to sew all the things? Please tell me I’m not alone.
p.s. you may have noticed we got a facelift around here! I finally moved over to WordPress (though I’ll still be at cashmerette.com), and it was a totally painless process thanks to Sarah at SpunMonkey. In the meantime, let me know if you see any glitches, because I’m sure I didn’t catch everything!
