So, thenewgreen commissioned a shirt from me, and I decided to make a Hubski-themed one. Still mid-process, needs buttons and hems.
Here is is head-on. Mostly black, subdued, but then...
BLAM color everywhere.
Proud of how this one is shaping up, lots of nice details in it - goobster, there are honest-to-god pleats and plackets on this puppy, I'll upload detail pics later.
Made my sister a dress for her birthday.
(There is a picture of me modeling it, but it's a bit early in the day for that...)
Relatedly, my mother, who is a saintly woman, saw me working on this shirt last night, and she literally pulled my father by his shirt to the machine and said "OUR SON CAN MAKE A PLEAT" like it was the most mindblowing thing she had ever seen. My dad has been, uh, not super pleased with my sewing in the past, so it was nice to at least get a "huh, pretty good" from him (even if it was kind of forced).
Bottom line: my mom is awesome.
Whale, whale, whale - another dang ol' shirt. Cozy cheap flannel, no major construction errors.
I've been buying a lot of women's sweaters from thrift stores and re-tailoring them. Definitely need some new buttons for this one.
Made a friend from the scraps, his name is Whaleiam. Free pattern (in German) is here if anybody is interested.
Life is pretty good, my boyfriend is coming to Chicago this weekend. Gonna go to some museums, the aquarium, a drag show, the usual.
