As long as it not someone else's mending! Your pants are too long? Let me get the stapler!
I think I made this coat around 2000. I know, pretty crazy mid-century modern, right?
I must have started cutting before it was all laid out, because it was a might short in the sleeve department. It was a vintage pattern (it even has a shoulder dart) and was supposed to have 3/4 length sleeves but ended up with something more like 5/8th or 11/16th sleeves! I did wear it, but those no-mans-land length sleeves always bothered me so last winter I decided to look for some fabric to add onto the sleeves. This fur jumped out at me like a rabid fake fur animal!
And finally this week, after 13 years, it has closure!
I made this shirt dress two years ago but never really wore it. I decided to cut it off to a tunic length and see if that helped. I'm not sure if it has, but I have worn it once. I really should make a shirt from this pattern.
This next jacket was made as a muslin, but I liked it enough to keep it. I copied it from a RTW jacket I thrifted. I got the fabric off the free table at a sewing club, but didn't have enough for facings & I put these old coat buttons on it. It always bugged me the way the button drooped, so I switched the buttons. Much better!
I'm currently working on another of these jackets and I'm very excited about it!
