Here it is:
This was my first attempt at sewing a piece with lots of curves, so the seams are pretty pathetically awful – I’m going to Â ask Sharon to show me how to sew a decent curved seam when I go up to see her on Sunday.
That said, I actually rather like this version, now that the purple collar is in place – it adds weight to the right half, reduces the vast fields of yellow, and adds an interesting reverse curve on the yellow side. Â Of course, the finished version will look nothing like this muslin, since the colors will be wildly different – so I really need to dye some muslin to match the panels. Â I might be able to do that this weekend, in between making chocolates. Â (Two kinds of chocolate covered caramels, chocolate covered apricots, chocolate covered candied Meyer lemon, Rangpur lime, grapefruit, and yuzu peels.) Â Hopefully Sharon can teach me to sew a decent seam and we can troubleshoot the design issues together.
Off to dinner! Â mom is in town and we are picking her up from the airport.
