sunday’s sewing

Isn’t this a lovely design! I thought so, which is why I decided to fix the reason it wasn’t worn at all last year.

This was my third update today. Well, I thought it would be. Those belled sleeves trail into all the wrong things, which is why it didn’t get worn.

Even though I’d found it at a charity shop, it is mostly silk, so I decided it was worth a bit of TLC, and a lot more wear before returning it to another charity shop for someone else to enjoy.

Examining the sleeves, I had a hard time flattening the seam. And even more time figuring out how get it to stay flat long enough to figure out what kind of stitch was used. I’d originally assumed it was overlocked, as it’s a knit.

But it wasn’t.

That’s a single stitch with what looks like not-the-average (read, super skinny) thread.

Hmmm.

I think I’m gonna live with it . . . . . .

The only solution I can think of is to change the theme, so I’ve been looking at different ones. Any thoughts? Suggestions?

Just wanted to let you know, so you won’t think it’s you.
