I'm sorry to say that the above photo is, in fact, a shirt I'm working on. Those pleats have been murder for me. They are tiny and need to be pressed and I'm actually in the process of seam-ripping all of them to start again. SIGH. Big, internal, frustrated sigh. I'm just not a perfectionist when it comes to making clothes. But this time, I really want to do these pleats nicely and neatly. I have no idea when this shirt will be finished.
On another note, I did do some thrifting last week and had two great finds. About 4-5 yards each of nice woven fabrics - super silky with a nice drape but not stretchy. I'm going to plan some high-waisted shorts for the red fabric that has a semi-chevron pattern on it.
Oh, yeah. I couldn't get a picture of them because as soon as I laid them out, Fernando jumped on top. Yes, that's a sweater. And no, I couldn't bear to make him move.
I also snapped a picture of the special project I've been working on for the May Giveaway Day. I'm excited to finish it!
