Today’s top came to me in a big bag ‘o stuff from the delightful Susan Lenz (a completely kick-ass fiber artist!)
You’re looking at an 80’s-tastic raw silk top. The fabric is fabu, and I love that pocket! With a bit of tweaking, it’ll look just like some of the tops at Urban Outfitters. 🙂
All this top really needs is a good take-in. I laid it out on my awesome work table and pinned the sides (even the sleeves)…about 2″.
Then, I ran each side under the needle.
Here’s what it looks like now that it’s been taken in…before I cut off the extra fabric. I sewed it with a bright red thread. I hope you can see it. 🙂
After the extra material was trimmed away, my new top was ready for a day at work, followed by an evening learning about Video Game Design! 🙂
The Columbia Design League put together such a great panel discussion with some amazingly talented game designers from around the country…including my friend JJ (who is just awesome sauce!). 🙂 I didn’t know a thing about this subject before attending this event, and I was really amazed and impressed with how many incredibly specialized people it takes to put together a good game nowadays. 🙂
They even had snacks!
