Easy Ageless Cool campshirt that I finished earlier in the spring. Sadly it's not easy to photograph without being modelled, but here it is flat on the cutting table. The fabric is a quilting cotton with kind of a retro mottled print. It was easy to sew, though I think next time I'lI use a different method to miter the corners. I thought LC's instructions were a little confusing. On the other hand the mitering on the vents came out pretty well, though I don't think I'd let LC inspect them. Also next time I'll make it an inch or two longer. Why didn't I do that this time? It's a standard alteration for me. I did remember to lengthen the sleeves by two inches to accomodate my ape-arms.
An orange tanky-thingie is in process. It's being made from a beautiful orange silk and cotton voile from Mill End in Portland. It's mostly done, but I'm still fussing with fit, length and bindings. Final photos to follow!
Also, a couple Hattie pictures. She's lately become interested in carbonation and loves to ponder the chemical wonder of it all:
