Seeing red

Next make I am *not* using anything slippy.  If I had a penny for… Well I’m sure you’ve been there.  There have been more successes than failures with this top, but only just:

  • It’s a lovely colour
  • I did have just enough fabric to cut out  a self-drafted top
  • I’m liking the sweetheart neckline
  • The bias binding is working well – love bias binding

You see now, I’m struggling.

  • There’s either no or very little seam allowance on my bodice block, good job I can make a super narrow seam and use my overlocking stitch
  • There’s not really enough length in the body, good job the jammie bottoms are high waisted
  • It frays like crazy

Apart from that!  It’s all coming together reasonably.  I often reach a low somewhere around the middle of a make.  The excitement and the energy that come with new a endeavor has waned and the renewed vigour that comes with the ‘race to the finish’ has not yet appeared.  Take heart, new pyjamas will soon be mine!  I hope that your pyjamas are coming along well too.
