Napkin of Ideas from Snoop Shopping on Vacation
Hmmmm – yep, this is how I do it – along with my trusty camera, and now my phone camera as well. However, sometimes it just isn’t possible to take a picture – so one just must sketch. Sew…here are my sketched design ideas from our recent working Colorado vacation…
Not jacket design – but, OH, was that cream cheese blended with salmon ever good!
Top right: a little T-shirt on a gal at a table next to us in a restaurant. The stretched elastic around the neck, down the center front, and around the armscye (but not under the armscye) was really a nice, simple, feminine touch. Can’t wait to try it – utilizing Clear Elastic and my trusty Twin Stretch Needle.
Center Scooped Neckline: This was in a shop – many different ribbings – different colors – attached together for the front neckline. Fodder for the new sweatshirt jacket pattern my brain has started on featuring sweaters and sweatshirts….
Sleeve below above sketch: Yet another idea for insertion of sweater fabric for a sweatshirt jacket sleeve…
carlopick? well – I thought that was the label in some neat knit dresses – but, alas, Google’s page 1 doesn’t take me anywhere – shucks!
Pink Linen Note: Reminds me of this great pink linen jacket in a HIGH Class shop in Vail, CO – with ruffles all around – lapel, front, hem, etc. The princess seams were stitched regularly, then pinched together as a French Seam – on the outside, and stitched close to the edge – really highlighted those flattering seams.
Other half of my napkin idea to come – but must go iron! Hubby seems to think end of 2nd day home all wash and ironing must be done. O well….. catch me later!
