Returning to normal programming

Whoops sorry for the long absence! Life's been busy but I have managed to do some sewing, this is my latest creation.

I've been itching for this one for a while so finally got myself organised enough to do it. The pattern is an oldie that I talked about previously but just perfect for what I wanted. I altered the neckline to be round instead of V and and left out the fancy racing stripes on the green version. 

The sewing of the whole thing was quite easy, the pleather proved to be a bit troublesome though and didn't want to go through my machine. So I put some swedish tracing paper over the seams and everybody was happy again. 

Fancy close up! I top-stitched the armhole seam just for effect. So another new thing I tackled in my sewing journey - raglan sleeves. Super duper easy things they are, I think I scare myself into thinking all these things are going to be so hard but most times they're not. Apart from binding, that's still my nemesis.

Now only if Brisneyland's weather would cool down just a smidge so I can actually wear it (me thinks that's not gonna happen).
