So here is the progress on the VPLL wrap project, as you can see, basting stitches everywhere, so we have many hours ahead before it's finished.
Found a scrap of green crepe de chine for the contrast fabric (which is a miracle because it matches so well), with less than 1 yard, the top collar and sleeve trim was cut.
So we had a few scares along the way, like the unfortunate placement of the yellow swirls.
The fabric width being narrower than 60", meant the need for two pieced areas placed at the back of the sleeves.
The finished edges, which were bound in self bias, the instructions do not recommend this, they give you an option of turn under and stitch or lining. Lining might be the way to go next time, there was a lot of hand finishing in the self bias.
All in all a successful project, I hope the recipient enjoys it... wait a minute.... is that a scull staring back at me? It's like Alexander McQueen is lurking here.
