Sew Fashionable 03/07/16
Interesting tidbits on sewing and fashion across the blogosphere this week!
This week is a whirlwind! Remember the romper I’ve been working on? I have to start over with different shorts. I eased out some of the crotch wrinkling, but there’s still a noticeable pulling. Not like a cameltoe, but a v-shaped pulling up all the way towards the waist. I had to put it away because I was done with vagina issues. I’ve been designing fabric, making hair bows, and dyeing lingerie elastic instead.
Here are some projects and posts I’ve been admiring.
