I love the 3/4 sleeves of this version! It also looks dashing with a cardigan. It's a bit too toasty here in Austin for it just yet, but it will be perfect when there's just a hint of a chill in the air.
I did the collar in a matching mustard to really make it stand out. The underside of the collar is in the same leafy fabric.
I am a total ninny and didn't realize my zipper was off at the top (by a ghastly FOUR teeth!) until I had already hand stitched the lining to it. A result of too much wine drinking and Wonder Years watching while handpicking the zipper. Somehow, I will live with this reminder of my imperfections. Never fear! I had fun doing it, which is really the important bit in the end.
I also discovered the UT library has rows of sewing books, a fact I never knew while studying there. I wanted to make myself cozy in the stacks and settle in for a good read, but I had plans with real people, so the host of sewing instructors immortalized in print had to wait.
- Next week, I'll do a recap of all three versions I sewed of the Emery Dress and announce the giveaway winner!
