I'm deep in Sewville and I'm loving every minute.
I'm sitting here WARM as toast in pants that FIT me everywhere.
I used to be a clothing designer years ago and I just got tired of not having what I needed to sew great things so I quit. WTF???? - I have my mood ways.
Fast forward 12 years:
Now I can dye and have developed many other tricks I can apply and with my new babylacs or cadilocks if you will, and a daily devotion to Emmaonesock .... I'm in dream land.
Today I made this up-cycled, reclaimed, greener than green red sweater and BTW I know it looks like something that rhymes with Mulva and her friend Delores. Man had his say so already!!
Let's face facts:
I like it and it looks good. I love the way the cashmere cuffs and collar HUG me. I took two things I wouldn't wear and turned them into something so me!
That's all that matters.
I used a very simple wool high v necked sweater and a cashmere turtleneck for fodder. I cut the crap out of both, neither was one felted. No serging - too much like everyone else. I just simply stitched a holding line along edges. Invisible. Light looking. Right looking for me.
The Jagina Monologue continues.
