Anyway, I do have a garment to sew that'd be appropriate for ... every single one of the first six challenges! And that is...
And here I explain why:
- January – Procrastination – finish a garment you have been putting off finishing (a UFO or PHD) or make something you have been avoiding starting.
- February – Tucks & Pleating – make a garment that features tucks and pleating for the shape or decoration
- March – Protection – make something to protect yourself (from weather or injury) or your clothes (from soiling etc.)
- April – Gender-Bender – make an item for the opposite gender, or make an item with elements inspired by the fashions of the opposite gender
- May – Holes – sometimes the spaces between stuff are what makes a garment special. Make a garment that is about holes, whether it is lace, slashing, eyelets, etc.
- June – Travel – make a garment for travelling, or inspired by travel.
So... isn't that great? If I attended the HSM16 I'd have half a year to finish the Brunswick :D Nevertheless I do try to finish it earlier (as I did try several times before *coughs*)! Well, we'll see.
I made some main alterations on the fit past weekend. For example, lowered the waistline by a couple of centimeters. That was a big step forward because now I can continue with the other bits that have to be done. Still a problem: The waistcoat needs some lining. And maybe an overall modification. I am not too happy with how it looks at the moment. Well... we'll se ;-)
