What is a girl to do? Oh yes, buy it! So I did! This was a fun pattern to make up. I had to get my Singer Featherweight out and use the ruffler attachment to gather all the strips that were needed for the frills. I have to say, if you've got to make loads of frills or ruffles - get a ruffler attachment!! I really enjoyed using raw edges - it feels like such a wild and crazy way to sew, quite the opposite to how I would ordinarily. I used my standard bodice top (based upon Collette's Sorbetto) to ensure a good fit, and my Feather was completed.
This is the Feather being worn with a black Patricia skirt.
And (above) with a pair of cropped trousers from the Summer. They are a little creased as they are fighting for space in my closet! I'm not sure that I like the Feather with trousers . . . . but the photo actually looks rather good!
And with a Phoebe 'jacket'. It makes quite a fun suit that I'd wear to work.
Now this is really weird. I had already typed my paragraph to finish off this portion of the post before taking the photos, and this is what I had written:
Unfortunately, I really don't like how it looks on me, so this ended up being a bit of a miss. I think it is because of the openness at the front - it just feels odd when I wearing it. However, it is finished, and I may well wear it in the future . . . I can change my mind you know!! Not wanting to waste design details, I have used the ruffles on another TG pattern - the Cara, and will share some photos of that pretty soon.
But having seen the photographs, I rather like the look!
Do you find that you change your mind once you make something up and see the photos - either for better or for worse?
