Endless, endless stripes.
But hey! I finished sewing the last stripe today, so now I can think about doing...the pockets. Or the collar. Or the front closures. Or the piping. OH, THE PIPING.
|Doofy-looking sleeves. I'll attach them last, just cause it's easier to work without those things flopping all around.|
|Earlier in the week, with just two stripes sewn on.|
|And now LOOK AT ALL THOSE STRIPES!|
I admit I'm not 100% pleased with how the thing looks when it's actually on, over the hoop - the skirt's a bit too full in the back (I was afraid of making it too skimpy when I was fitting it!), and the velveteen makes the whole thing a bit stiff, so it stands out kind of weirdly. But it's pretty much un-fixable at this point without totally deconstructing it - and that ain't happening. I can live with a bit of skirt weirdness!
