A few days ago I tried on Ichito's "jacket"-whatever-it-is and noticed that it needs a slight make-over. I needed to cut those front panels into a more triangular shape because I noticed just hiking them up didn't do it. I also needed to take in the back of the garment because it was too big.
|Notice triangular pointy front panels|
So what do I do? Cut it.
|Before any modifications. Poor thing thought it was con-ready..|
|Marked cutting line|
|Test photo after cutting and hemming|
|Took in the back seam and ironed it..|
|Folded in front panel sides too and sewed around them|
|Testing after the operation with a substitute sash (blue kimono under)|

I also helped mom moving her former fabric store's leftover fabrics (those that had been stored in big black bags in the old storage house) to our attic and I found some fabrics I can use for Ichito's obi and shoe covers. Yay, free fabric once again. <3
|That rib knit fabric just doesn't want to photograph its real color... it's closer to an army green...|
Until then, see ya!
