Finally, I have returned to David's Nevermore - Quoth the Raven Shirt. After cutting it out, I parked it, and while I got a little bit done at the last WSBN social sewing day, it was high time to get stuck in again.
Of course my sewing was cut short by the quake yesterday, but I did make some progress!
Trying something different/easier with the front - a false placket made by folding under twice and top stitching. With such a busy fabric it's hard to tell the difference. And of course, the pattern matches!
The pocket already applied. Whaddya mean you can't see it? ;-)
Shortage of fabric brought about by extreme pattern matching of huge repeat meant I lined the yoke with the contrast fabric. MrC loves the blood red. I had no idea he had such a macarbre streak!
One sleeve set in and flat felled. Gosh this fabric is so interesting, I keep seeing new things. Candelabra, filigree, bats...
Progress shot - one sleeve in but underarm not sewn. I got as far as putting the other sleeve in flat when the rockin' rollin' ridin' started and Work Ceased For The Day.
Now I am making myself a Pavlova Top. So, No More Nevermore for a while :)
