Another day - another lesson. I Really love this color camo and this medium size was what I had been using for my brother-in-law & DH. But I am wanting to maybe make & sell some shirts to pay for my machine. So, when I completed this one tonight I hung it up to take the picture & I took a long hard look at it & decided that it had faults. It's a shame too because my stitching seems to be excellent. The more I studied the more I thought I should call my brother-in-law & get feedback -straight from the horse's mouth - o ! I meant straight from the fellow's mouth!
And -low & behold -what I had been thinking was exactly what he said :
1. Shoulders wee bit too wide
2. Long sleeves are too tight at wrist
3 Neck band is too loose!
So, now I need to redraw my pattern! Not my favorite job at all!
I like the design but Mr. Janome "hiccuped" on that K. Plus, my dear little camera doesn't want to play nice with me-the pictures are not turning out clear . O, while I am whining - my iron - is being ugly too. Sometimes it will turn on & light up & sometimes it will not. What is it with me and machines??????????????
Well, love to all - gotta go have a fight with some patterns.
