Optical Illusion Part 23:18 PM
A comment called me out on my last "optical illusion" post. They wondered if the difference in appearance was the sleeves. I as...
So optical illusion part 2. I'm wearing my FAVORITE t-shirt pattern, the Patterns for Pirates Layer Me Up. It has great coverage for me and awesome sleeves. These sleeves are actually modified long ones! I didn't have quite enough of this Girl Charlee Knit Fix fabric to make long sleeves. So I cut them as long as I could and added elastic into the center of the sleeve pattern piece. Awesome ruched sleeves!
And for a bit of oomph, I sewed up a pair of Sisboom Judy Fancy Pants in a fabulous Ponte De Roma From Cali Fabrics. I had never sewn these in knit and really should have taken the side seams in. BUT, the best part here is that if I slim the leg, I'll have what looks like a passable pair of palazzos. And while I wasn't so sure about them before, I think I need palazzos in my life. I actually look like I have hips and a butt in these photos. HIPS. Do you know how hard it is for inverted triangles to look like they have hips?
And a shout out to the Capsule Wardrobe Sewing Group on Facebook. After a discussion on how to wear "red" lipstick, I picked out this simple purpley gloss from Milani. What a difference from my usual pinky gloss!
I don't think you need any further words, so on to the pictures:
