From Vision to Reality
As of Friday, I had the raw yardage my son had chosen for his sweater.
Yesterday, I made the sweater. I based it off of one of his dress shirts. my son and I had several conversations about the shape he was looking for in this sweater.
My son discovered that the fabric was not so comfortable against his skin so I cobbled together a lining for the sleeves ad the upper torso, after I had sewn the sweater together. Luckily the sweater fabric had lots of drape ( as did the lining).
My son likes how the sweater matches his silver pants.
Because I learned how to sew after my kids were born and had a whole lot to learn before I began to make clothing, I realize that my youngest probably has had more of his clothing sewn by me than either of his older siblings.
My husband has a fear of having his clothing being conspicuous. Clearly my youngest has not inherited this worry.
