I started the seems on the Raspberry Ripple last night and did up the sides using mattress stitch. Now, I think I’ve mentioned before that this is my very first time using mattress stitch.. and I was mega proud of myself. It was all lovely and neat. Yay! 😀
And then I tried attaching the sleeves to the sides and top… For those of you that have made garments before, I think you can see the flaw in this. I sat here and tried and tried to make the sleeves fit. They didn’t and wouldn’t. 😦
I was not happy.
Ollie convinced me to put it aside and come back to it later, so I did.
I looked at it this morning and unpicked the sides… both of them. And then in the car, on the way to visit Ollie’s parents, I did the shoulder seams….
The seams aren’t quite straight, but it looks ok.. I have to tackle the sleeves next. The dreaded sleeves. DREADED SLEEVES. I am seriously not looking forward to doing them…
