I have a handful of half-finished garments hanging around, and I decided I should probably get some work done on them before I start anything new.
I do a lot of things on the “what happens when I do this?” premise. This bolero was started months ago – what happens if I partially sew down rows of circles on top of a partly-constructed garment? Do they look like scallops? Do they flutter a little? Will they move with the body? etc etc.
I sewed like three rows on when I started it, and then set it aside to work on more wearable things, and more scarves for my fall shows. I’ve made some progress!
Now imagine what this would have been like had I properly lined everything up and measured.. ha ha ha. JUST GET IT DONE, ME.
