It's been long since the last post.
The other day, I thought that I had to stop moaning. Moaning here about my strange fabrics and agonizing sewing in the way I usually did in the past. So, I decided to wait for something fun happening to me. If I could find topics that was fun to talk as well as fun to read, I didn't have to laugh at myself in public any more. As I am not interested in being useful, it seemed the only way to
After some period, I found that my humble and positive motivation about better blog posts simply ruined my blog life, instead of giving lovely results. The more I tried to find something purely fun, the more I found I had nothing to say.
What is more, as time went by, I even forgot how to start a casual blog post. Is the first line supposed to be "Hello dear,"? Or is it "Oh dear,"? I don't remember anything. Devastating.
I refashioned a sweater and made it into a cardigan.
(Let's pretend to forget the fact I don't know how to start like honest people, shall we?)
I had one retailed simple bottleneck sweater for some years.
It had nice color, and nice texture too.
The thing is, I never got which side was front to be. In other words, no matter which side I tired, it looked awkward as if it was put back as front. More confusingly, it had care labels on both sides, one on each side. As if the manufacturer wanted to block anybody from knowing the rightous right side seam.
Besides, I loved the fabric. Actually, because I was too bewitched by the fabric, I wore it quite often with feeling depressed by the shape. I almost concluded that I was not sober when I bought it. Until some days ago.
This Ahhh! instantly reminded me why this sweater was two sizes too large.
Yoshimi, you purchased it from John Smedley two or three years ago, because it was heavily discounted at the clearance sale. And you got it for the next winter. With the exact purpose for r e f a s h i o n i n g. Why do you put it on and moan about the shape?
"Better late than never,"
my slow neuronal system transplanted from squid whispered.
I should agree.
Hope you're having a good time!
soft placket cardigan
Refashioned, by using the pattern "lady's basic T-shirt from pumila paper patterns.
An old and over-sized pullover was totally disassembled and cut for a new cardigan. A set of plackets was adopted in contrasting ecru wool jersey without interfacing with raw edges. Inspired by a cardigan dress from CARVEN that had similar plackets.
