Yesterday I wrote about violating my own sewing rules (no sewing apparel for others; not sewing on a deadline). I sewed S2892 for a friend, on a 24 hour deadline. I finished it, she loved it, and it fits! I was SO excited to see how well it fits her. It fits her SO well. It's perfect. And she was SO appreciative of it too!
Here she is at work today (she wishes to remain anon, hence the headless shots):
She knows from reading my blog, I like the front, side and back shots!
The back of her skirt has cute ruffle detailing, doesn't it???
I think the shirt looks even better than person than it does in the photos.
Also, an addendum to the story: She said when she opened the box, she thought I gave her my shirt. But I was wearing my shirt. And then she thought I actually had 2 of these shirts all along and that I had been keeping one from her! ha ha!
Also the armholes and hem overall looked fine. I think I was too close to the project in such a short amount of time.
Her goodbye party was today and her last day at work is tmw morning. I will miss her.
