Its finished! Even after my embarrassing sewing the wrong sides together incident!
And as promised we have some gawky photos! I feel like my awkward side was really on form today!
As I said yesterday I used the very last of my Grandad Robert fabric! Which kind of makes me a little sad but happy at the same time!
I tried my very hardest to stick to the instructions! (apart from with the zip, but I wasn't going to let my lack of an invisible zip and a zipper foot slow me down!)
and I think it turned out okay! well at least I'm pleased with it! sadly I don't have any pictures of the inside but I am SUPER proud of my waistband stitching! I stitched in the ditch for the first time ever and boy I stitched that ditch good!
The only trouble I've really had is styling it! I'm actually wondering if I should hem it again and make it an inch or two shorter! I tired it with a couple of tops, including my Breton stripe cardigan and my lovely sheer blouse! but I just kept looking like a librarian (probably because I never usually wear this style) so in the end I opted for Mr Knitwits white shirt ( he never wears this shirt because it makes him look like he's done a bunk from school! Oh the pains of having a baby face!)
Right so I LOVE this pattern its beautifully written and I love that it only requires a small amount of fabric! I'm not sure if its entirely my style but I have plans to wear it tomorrow for the nursery run so I guess ill just have to see how comfy I feel! I know I want to make at least one more! Mainly because I have an awesome idea for a variation provided I can find the right fabric!
I'm so glad I decided to work through Love at First Stich at a steady pace, I can actually feel myself getting better and more confident in what I'm doing! Which is awesome!
