We started with a basic muslin prototype and have worked our way to the real deal, complete with poison green piping.
The cats think its a new play thing so I've had to camouflage this glorious green piping. And why not use one of the pretty spools that decorate my sewing mantle?
Piping in the sleeve top, bottom and seam.
Some of these pictures don't quite have the color right. The main fabric is a soft moss green, accented with poison green piping and coco brown.
We could only find 8 yards of the focus fabric so I'm going to be making do with what's leftover to make (hopefully) a three tiered skirt. A three tiered skirt that would usually take over 7 yards to make.
I'll be using a lot of muslin to stretch the fabric.
And there will be a bunch more poison piping to add the those tiers.
Hopefully I haven't bored you with this. I just thought some of you may be interested. And this seems to be the only sewing I've been getting done.
