A failed experiment pt. 3

Posted by Kathleen Fasanella on Apr 5, 2006 at 2:37 pm / Patterns, Sewing, Tutorial / Trackback

If you’ve been following this series (a spin-off of reverse engineering standard work pt. 5), you know we’ve determined the single piece method to finishing off a placket is successful (see this). I plan on doing Danielle’s hand-out version with the rectangular cut-out because we already know that Beth’s version works. Toward that end, Jess (or was it Josh? -they look so much alike they can’t tell each other apart) drew up the technical specs as per Danielle’s handout. The result appears below (the full size version is here):

This is the one I’ll be doing (and thanks Jess!). I’d planned to do it today but I got a late start. I had a meeting at my kid’s school. I have a hard time refocusing if my regular routine is disrupted.

Speaking of disruptions and distractions, here’s one for you. It’s a dress made entirely of condoms. Quite pretty really. And here’s another one too.
