Mostly about sewing! However, I may wander off onto other topics from time to time...

Burda 2/09 108 and the Animal Not Found in Nature Print
Can't remember the last time I actually sewed up a piece of fabric in the same month it came through the door. This is one of the 'trendy' knits that a couple of online vendors were selling like hotcakes this summer; I grabbed this from one of the final clearances. Not something I'd usually go for, but the color suits me much better than the usual gold/brown leopard/cheetah/other big cat print so I thought I'd make something fun. The vest is from May '08 Burda (I think); that has been a true wardrobe staple that is not shown at its best angle here.
I need to make more vests.
I've got the sleeves pushed up; they really do cover my wristbones. And I still need to tweak the neckline a bit; it *still* wants to buckle a bit.
But it'll do, it'll do. It was kinda fun to wear today...
