It has been a bit nuts with me working on small projects and traveling (where do you all find so much time to produce?), but last night I finally got to clipping, notching, favoring & pressing and you can see the result here.
Mostly I was inspired by Sunni's post, where she started way after me & was almost caught up. I thought, "What am I waiting for?"
I'll tell you what I was waiting for...I was afraid to do the clipping & notching! Because then it's final and there's no going back!
Sunni has also turned me on to cotton bouclé, which I didn't even know existed!
I'm pleased. I think the collar looks great. I thoroughly recommend the Starlet Suit class. Gertie is an excellent teacher & her giggle is wonderful, too. I am learning so much, mostly having words explained that I knew of, but didn't understand (favoring a seam is one example). Not to mention lots of skills & techniques. It's also been an excuse for me to invest in some new notions. I got some new scissors last week & just love them: control & power, all in my little Mundials!
Last night I managed to get the buttonholes for the facing done. Another excellent reminder of how much I hate handwork! ;-)
BTW, just for fun, a Starlet-Suit-Search on Google Images turned up lots of fun colors & ideas!
