In fact, I have three days to sew... and three projects. First up is finishing the first challenge project. The back section is together. The last time I worked on it, I "threaded" the middle bottom panel with evenly placed lines of zigzag stitching.
It's subtle and adds visual texture - something more than relentless brown but not so much something that your eyes are doing the wiggly dance. The back is completely together. The front is significantly finished. There are no sleeves. This sounds doable.
While I'm working, I'll be thinking about my asymmetrical assignment from Diane. When I told her that asymmetric was my next challenge with Sheri, she assigned making a collage of asymmetrical design and creating "paper doll" mock-ups of asymmetrical designs. Even before the assignment, I had downloaded this image of the Blossom Smocked Cowl - $48.00 - from Anthropologie. LOVE it. If you have images of asymmetrical garments you like, I'd love to see them AND...
... I'm also interested in garments that morph shape like Lynn Mizono's Vogue 1410 which can be worn longer or buttoned into a shorter shape. I think garments like this could be useful for a travel wardrobe, creating new silhouettes from existing garments and extending the possibilities.
