Sewing doldrums occur when you make something, and no matter how well it has turned out, the reception is less than ideal.
You know I just showed you this t shirt, but I have more to say about it.
I had a terrible suspicion that this excellent and creatively satisfying garment was destined for a life on the floor of the wardrobe under a wet towel, being stigmatized as ITCHY, a word that ranks very highly in the clothing rejection stakes.
However, the sewing world is so helpful, that two very clever readers, Shannon of MushyWear and StephA of escapades in sewing,suggested that knit interfacing might help.
It was ridiculously simple (knit tricot interfacing from FashionSewingSupply) and, unlike much other sewing type activity, could be carried out by a seamstress with a broken thumb.
The new ranking is "it feels Okay now"
This, dear readers, is a wild success. I should tell you all my problems......
