that I had to figure out.
ever put something in the dryer and then forget about it? I almost did that but
fortunately, I know I get distracted easily so I have a habit of setting the
timer for ten minutes to bring me back to zero.
I was almost sick as I dashed
for the dryer imagining a mini-elvis! I got there in time and it was good!
getting the second front done, I seamed that dart/vee neck shaping, grafted the two longer pieces together to form
the back neck of the shawl collar, folded the facing in and stitched the two
layers into the back neck. Did the rest of the seaming and finishing and eucalaned
steamed it. It is a little on the big side, but I’ll blame that on my
half swatches. Not that I really mind – I think it is supposed to be a little
loose and slouchy, something to wear when you’re sort of lounging around with
company. Would I make it again? Yes, for someone else but I’d use a nice wool
that is a little more predictable than Elvis was because it would turn
out much better - I did like the way the collar turned out and I had fun experimenting!
