Smart Sailor

The Sailor Cutsew from GLB vol 40 didn't take long at all to sew.
A night project, although the collar was quite hard to figure out :(


Salute!
It's nice and casual enough for daily wear too:) Although I hate sewing with strechy fabrics, I need to practice more!


I think I need to loosen the elastic in the arms too. For some reason my forearms and wrists are quite thin, but not my biceps :/


front and back
Thanks Mr Nice Guy for the photo of the back ^_^ I couldn't find my interfacing so I used black cotton instead for the interfacing of the button strip.


IW cutsew, IW hair tie
Here is the tutorial just click to enlarge :)

Unfortunatly I wasn't really a smart sailor going out drinking.
Note to self and everyone; know your limits

Thanks Larry for the photos. I lost my necklace and house keys that night :/


What's your favourite fabric?
I prefer sewing with cotton, but I love silk.
...what have you lost when you've gone out?

I tend not to lose things, when I go out, but my brother loses a lot of his stuff. He's lost his glasses and his shoes and I think his jackets four times...

cominica said...

I love sewing with cotton too! <3 <3 but my fave fabric is chiffon ^^

Piperita Patty said...

Somehow I managed to never get reall drunk.
Too bad for the keys :( I lost a doll that was a present of my friends once :(
The cutsew is amazing!!!
My favourite fabric to sew is thick cotton, but lately I'm having a love story with pile! It doesn't fray and it isn't a pray for moths!

/reply/ the magazines my aunt gives me are only some months old XD But I like them anyway beacuse I look at the images and cut the outfits I prefer for my fashion scrapbooks!

So adorable! *^_^* I don't sew but will say I adore the feel of silk on me...lol. I lost a watch ring once (you know, those rings you wear as a kid that also showed the time) and I was devastated b/c it was Hello Kitty. T_T

I like jersey, and velvet... Soft and cuddly!

I lost a shoe when I was 15, but I wasn't clubbing, I was just drunk and trashing about in the village I lived in. :P I barely don't drink nowadays, I'm crazy enough when I'm sober. ;)

Natasha said...

I love the clubbing photos of you Grace, and your outfit looks amazing. My favourite fabric is cotton, definitely and I've not lost anything on a night out...yet! I'll send off my letter to you soon :) xxx

Blue Eyed Night Owl said...

That looks lovely!
I get annoyed too when short sleeves are so tight. Hope it's not a lot of extra work to fix it!

I love sailor collars, it looks really cute on you. I think I'd maybe do a coloured collar instead, or maybe just white for some contrast. This is a project I'd love to try if I buy a sewing machine any time soon!
