for me to get my Grandmother's Choice top assembled. Things keep getting in the way.
In a week or so my son is going to an Animee convention and he wants to go in character (costume). And he wants to make the costumes himself. A few weekends ago we spent an afternoon visiting the Op Shops (opportunity/secondhand/charity - call them what you will) for clothing items to use as the base for his costumes. Then we needed to go buy some more supplies at the fabric and craft stores.
I set him up with my spare sewing machine on the dining room table and he has been carefully stitching away. Now keep in mind there is no pattern to work with and I have not even seen a picture of what he is trying to create. However, I have been patiently (I hope) trying to guide him along to achieve the look he is after.
That dark blue fabric still on the bolt has yet to be converted into a hooded cape. I did keep suggesting we buy a pattern for that but I was firmly told "no". So I eagerly wait to see how that item is going to turn out!
Just remind me next time that smaller is better!
