I finished Sophie’s little linen traveling costume and managed to get her to stand still for a few photos. While she was at camp and at her request, I also made a hat using the faux suede/fur hat pattern #24 from Ottobre 04/2003). She wanted a polar bear hat; can you tell how I mussed up? Yes, I made the ears to big! We have since decided it is a mouse hat, and I will try again for the polar bear effect.
I have entered the suit in the Threads magazine’s “Express Yourself In Linen” contest. There is some stiff competition! I am proud of myself to have not only completed a challenging garment, but to have blogged it as well. You can view the previous blog installments on this project here: 1 (fabric preparations), 2 (underlining and pockets), 3 (shell construction), 4 (pants), and 5 (finishing jacket).
On to new things!
