I could have posted hours ago but NO, I had to finish the blouse you know. I couldn't stop. You will notice the photos get darker and darker. Right now it is pouring down rain which is a blessing here on this remote desert mountain. Here I am working on the crisp sleeves that took hours to figure out!
I was going for McQueen sleeves as you probably remember. Well I didn't even know where to begin. Course I stalled as long as I could.
The one above is what I thought it would take. The smaller piece is what I ended up with. I hacked that sleeve down to nothing.
Right about now is when I thought you would want to see my sweet thread collection. This is not even all of it.
This is the final sleeve before I turn it inside out. I cut off as much material as I can so I can have sharp corners MAN. I am so *fill in the blank*!
This was after about 3 hours. I love how the sleeve is only covering half the hole. Lady Ga Ga will be calling tomorrow for this one.
Notice how it is night time now. I could have just stopped there but NO. I tackled the zipper in the back which came out crooked first. I ripped it out and put it back in. Then I finished the bottom edge.
The zipper is orange babies! You can't really tell becuase it is invisible but hey, I know it! I still have some hand sewing to do to tack down some fly away edges of course. From the back it reminds me of serving burgers to someones car window wearing roller skates. I love how it came out. I have never seen anything like it. It is refreshing.
I had to try it on of course at 9:30PM at night. I could have flat ironed my hair too but I didn't take it that far. I know the ties are a bit too long. Better too long than - well you know...
