I'm Done with the Tangerine Top

I look so happy in the photo. But, folks, I'm acting.

Never has something so simple taken so long to create. If you read this blog regularly, you know of my equipment troubles. If you read my Twitter feed, you know of other issues that came up. At this point, I'm not sure I'll even do one of my regular "Further Notes on the..." posts.

Perhaps one day I'll recover and can look back on this top without emotion.... I did work out a couple of new (to me) techniques. In fact, aside from the things that went wrong, this top was one of the easiest things I've sewn. Even the asymmetrical hemline and neckline were easy.

Though I feared working with 100% bamboo (I thought it would be slippery.), this embossed rib Clementina behaved itself marvelously.

And it's done. Maybe that's why I'm really smiling in the top photo.

And though I'm often more into process than product, sometimes done is better than... undone.
