Spider inside my dreams, I think I love you

I found this partially finished shirt in my UFO stash, and rekindled my love for the retro-tack fabric. All that it was lacking was a hem and having the facing stitched down. It's a pretty flimsy tissue knit polyester fabric, so it was a bit of a struggle to get all of the stitches so come out right, particularly the zig-zag stitches of the hem. Because this shirt was for me and I wasn't in a particularly anal mood, I didn't take any measures to unsew any imperfect stitches. I can not wait to wear this thing.


Heinous or awesome? Hein-awesome.

In other news, to my complete horror, I may have lost my zipper foot. I realized this while trying to complete another UFO: a summer dress, which only lacks the zipper. This missing zipper foot may be one more step in the direction of my dream machine. (If they still have it at Hancock.)


Probably doesn't fit anymore.

Also, the Giant Western Button-down Shirt is looking pretty shirt-ish. I'm almost done. Thankfully, it doesn't require any zippers..pictures later.
