Making Things: Jean Jacket

I know I posted a picture of this hanging up a few days ago, but I never took a picture of it on! I’m hoping the collar will settle down a little as I wear it. Otherwise I’m really pleased. I could have made the sleeves a little slimmer, but I tend to wear it far into winter with sweaters underneath.


Making Things: Short Sleeve Oxford

Probably my favorite shirt I’ve made so far, I finally got the sleeves nice and slim and the right length, and all the top stitching looks good. The fabric is somewhere between a chambray and an oxford, and sewed up really nicely. It does get wrinkly easily though.

My only regret is that I forgot to order the tiny buttons for the collar. So it is not technically an OCBD. I’ll probably tack them onto my next supply order and add them on. But I’ve already worn it twice. It’s nice to remember that as much as I like making stupid, colorful, weird things, that making simple things is gratifying too, and much easier to wear. I’d like to buy some red chambray and make another.

Someone decided the PW box needed to be stacked on the City Paper.  But why?  Still full of papers too.

even if i don’t 100% understand it, at least ‘stardust genius’ sounds ‘wrestling-y’ enough

also naito is a cutey

also i think i might bite the bullet and watch the last night of the G1 live, i’m so excited for time splitters/redragon (but who do i root for???)


Can anybody explain to me why Honma’s trunks/coat say ‘Vampire Chicken’ on them?
To be fair everyone has great engrishy slogans written on their gear. But his is especially baffling.

In exciting news, I finally pulled the trigger on buying a Brother 1034 serger. So far I’ve got nothing but good things to say. It was easy to thread and stitches beautifully.

Of course instead of doing something reasonable for a first project, I decide to test out my Lone Star Bike Short idea that I’d been kicking around since I started debating getting the serger. Yes, Y-seams and tiny pieces sound totally reasonable on a brand new machine.

Understandably, it’s a little lopsided because of that. But actually, it came out better than I anticipated. By the second side I’d gotten into the groove of it, and it only took me an afternoon to put together. I really just wanted to see if it would work, or if the pieces were just too small for the serger to handle—or if all the serger seams would limit the stretch of the fabric too much. Neither was actually an issue, and now I’m excited to experiment with more patchwork patterns.

The fabrics were just some weird tencel/nylon blends I had around in a horrible color scheme. I probably won’t finish the waist band/leg openings on this ‘rough draft’ mostly because the color’s so awful I’d never wear them. But, there will most definitely be a pair in a better color scheme with neater seams coming soon.
