Deep into embroidering the robe, sashiko stitching is really engrossing, and got a Bernadette Banner alert on YouTube. Which unfurled my next adventure in sewing Something Nice to Wear.
To wit: a pirate shirt.
For sheer pleasure in watching a great hand sempstress at work, follow Bernadette Banner. She's funny, wildly skilled and she has a pet guinea pig, Cesario.
I'm definitely up for this. I may have enough linen to make it, too. Already made notes unintelligible to anyone but me. Some kind follower transcribed Bernadette's handwritten notes and I copied for my design book, because you never know with pix. This is another make your own pattern from notes kind of design.
Never a dull moment.
