Look. Not all monsters are spooky, or creepy. Some are “cuddly”. In fact that was listed in the job description from this particular client!
Athletic stripe at sleeve, and super-cool little silver horns!
Fully-lined hood in a super-soft cotton stripe, machine-stitched eyelets, and hand-knit i-cord in poison-green cotton:
The large front pocket is lined in the same stripe that lines the hood:
The 100% cotton “teeth” lining the pocket opening:
Phoenix, who at a size 6 doesn’t quite fill out this size 14. It is pinched at the back with clothespins but as you can see, the bust is still too large. Still – she was a willing and available model. She wants to be paid. Thoughts?
I am so pleased with how this turned out – 100% accurate to the sketch I provided the client. It is not only gratifying I can sew what I can draw – it is practical.The client only pays once they’ve agreed to the garment’s sketch and price so at that point we are likely to both have a good experience. So far, the system has worked out well. I provide a 100% refund (no questions asked) and I am also pretty selective at which clients I take on.
As always, you can read a bit more about construction in the Flickr tagset.
Up next: a silk blouse, planning out a drover’s coat for a trade, and maybe even a project for my own family!
