Hazel’s new shirt is in its last fitting, having been completed yesterday.
I’m quite happy with it – I did have some trouble with the sleeves, but nothing too hard to fix.
It has a false button-up front, which I’m proud of – we’ll pretend this top has a little flap covering the buttons, which is definitely not because I couldn’t be bothered embroidering them on.
T: “That collar isn’t sitting right – I’m sure I made them identical. Are you sure you don’t want me to tack that down really quick?“
H: “It’s fine, I promise! No-one will notice.”
The collar is attached with a facing, which was difficult to get to stay flat – probably because it was so thick. I’m definitely not a fan of miniature facings! Anyway, Hazel’s happy, which is what matters. The plan is to wear it under pinafores, and with skirts when it’s less cold.
Anyways, see ya!
