Life is still busy, but that is a good thing. I have started getting up earlier and going to the walking track for a thirty minute walk. I walk briskly so that is approx 1.5 to 2 miles. I am hoping to shed some of my extra weight which is all "belly fat."
Wednesday I decided to use some of my woven fabric to sew a new vest. I pulled out my "stash" of fabric and started looking at my choices. I found a couple of "leftover" pieces from another project that I really wanted to use, but one of them was too short. Hmmmm.... Now what? Oh I know, I will sew a piece onto it from yet another woven piece!
First I stay stitched the edges of that piece and then sewed it to the short piece. Then I started sewing. The pattern is written in Japanese but pictures are universal. Also the measurements are metric - centimeters - so I just turned my tape measure over to the metric side and carried on. This is a Saori pattern that has a cut and hemmed neckline. It is a v neck. I probably cut it a bit too deep. But then I realized (after sewing it all together of course!) that my fabric was a bit wide. So I did the adjustments on the center front and center back - thus closing the neckline a bit.
So what does it look like?
Can you guess where I added the fabric? (You weavers out there - I am sure you can so just say yes, but I am a weaver!)
It has only been a little over half a day since my last post, so if you missed it - go here
