Practice Waffenrok- sleeve 1

12 Jun

I love the way the faux puff and slash look. I hate how long it take to do. I have the stripe part of the construction down now. Once the stripes are cut, sewing them together takes no time at all. The time comes in creating the puffs. It is taking about 3-4 hours per sleeve. Normally, I can do a shirt in that time. The colors cause a little bit of eye strain, so I am bouncing between projects, and not really completing any one thing. I have about 4 projects in various states of completeness.

I like the addition of the purple binding to the puffs. It breaks up the orange and actually makes it tolerable.
