OK, friends, remember how the striped shirt I pieced together from fabric remnants earlier this week looked like it needed a blue stripe down the front -- to me, anyway?
Doesn't that look better? I cut a blue stripe off the front right facing and topstitched it onto the left front button placket. (NOTE: The original blue stripe is hidden in the tuck that I had to make to form the front left placket. That's why you saw two brown stripes next to each other in the top photo, which looked wonky.)
|The blue edge is the selvage.|
Next, I pieced together enough fabric to make a collar band.
Finally, I added buttonholes and cute vintage plastic buttons and hemmed the shirt.
And here's the finished garment:
Yet again, a shirt I've made looks better on
Meanwhile, I found a girl for Roy: a size 8 PGM residing in an East Village four-story walk-up. Only $60 (plus cab fare). I didn't tell you about the $200 size 6 Wolf deal I thought I had wrapped up last week but which got sold out from under me by a very inconsiderate Craigslist seller; I've let it go -- la la la.
I'm content and so is Roy. He loves to collapse her shoulders.
|Baby got back.|
I hate to sound heteronormative, but don't you think they look "right" together? (I admit to hoisting him up a few inches to avoid the Tom & Mimi-Nicole-Katie effect.)
OK, folks, we need a name. Ava? Esther? Lana?
I'm all ears!
