Working it out - the redux

I chat a bit (okay, a lot) about projects left incomplete. I have an embarrassing riches of them. As I hunted through my chest of unfinished clothing designs and sewing projects, not to be confused with the chest of unfinished knit/crochet projects, I found quite a few things which defy explanation.

Who leaves a jacket unfinished for want of buttons? The younger me has a lot to answer for on that front.

Unfinished after all these years.
Have I mentioned that I do not like to iron!? Lol

I also found some great hunks of fabrics; wool gabardine, chiffon, silk and panné velvet, tulle,

Excited, I pulled them out of the chest for inspection. All was well with them, not a mark of damage to be found. My mind envisioned all sorts of jackets and waistcoats, veils and bags. Later that night I curled up in bed with my myPad and sketched my little heart out. I used my comic character, Cypher, as the model for my outfits. It worked on two fronts, it allowed me to give voice to my ideas and it gave me some new images of Cypher for future issues of the comic.

It's great to be inspired.
