been slowing plodding along on my lady grey! i have a tendency to rush through sewing projects, just to get them “done,” and i never really enjoy the sewing process itself. i am trying to slow down and take my time; get everything done right and learn as much as i can!
but man, it is taking forever! and yes, i am SUPER far behind haha!
and padstitching? ugh, if i’m lucky, i’ll be done by christmas.
beginning to padstitch.
this is my first foray into the tailoring realm and, ugh, although it is not difficult, it is very time-consuming. in order to the padstitch to be effective, the fabric needs to be rolled while stitching. and the stitches need to be invisible from the outside. i am not doing terribly well with the whole “invisibility” thing, but at least my stitches are tiny, the thread kind of matches, and ehh it’s the bottom of the lapel idgaf.
ooh, and i think i figured out what i’m going to do with my masses of leftover fabric – make a making pillbox hat! hahaha is that too much? actually i don’t care, i’m gonna do it anyway.
