The top fabric is the remnant, the second and third fabric are net/meshes previously purchased from Frou Frou and the bottom piece is the left overs from this jacket. And of course the shoe! The coral mesh was discarded from the project as the colour was too bright for the rest.
I drew a plan for the piecing of the remnant. No section could be wider than 20cms.
The finished top. If you look closely you can see the joins. I was going to use the net to highlight the joins but decided I liked it as it was. I used the net for the neck binding, hem and sleeves. The neck and sleeves have the netting doubled. The sleeves are single layer and hemmed with the overlocker using the rolled hem function.
The back is the netting lined with a brown knit lining.
The green skirt fabric is just pinned around Eames at the moment but hopefully soon will be a simple skirt. Once done, I will take a photo of me in the outfit and shoes.
Ahh, it feels good to have sewn something in 2008!
