|The back of the sweater that I showed you on Sunday. (HERE is the beginning of the project.) I have spread it out as flat as possible so I can figure out where to make my cut lines and use as much of the sweater as possible without wasting anything.|
|Waist ribbing has been cut off, and pins have been put into the little canyon between the small ribbing on the bodice of the sweater so I can cut exactly where I want. I have planned this in order to use as much of the back as I can.|
|One side is now cut the entire length of the apron.|
|The label will even be a part of it: Adele Joyce Petites|
This is a 70% Lambswool, 20% Angora Rabbit Hair, 10% Nylon sweater.
|After cutting the side edge, the top edge of the apron (the shoulder seam of the sweater) is being cut across to the collar.|
|Green Chicken seems to like what is going on. She wanted to show you where I will be cutting the placket. Look at the very tip of her beak--this is the cutting line.|
|The buttonhole side of the placket.|
|Cutting the other edge of the front of the apron.|
|The button side of the placket.|
Now I have the basic apron with attached ties.
I will hand-stitch the sections to make the ties fully intact across the top of the apron.
|Thoughts for tomorrow:|
A pocket for my ruler and chopsticks...plus other accoutrements!
It all makes Green Chicken very happy.
