Feeling Sheepish

At Halloween I wanted to make a giant sheep’s costume, complete with jacket and pants and a sheep cap.

But when I found the fabric I wanted, the total fabric required came to over $100. So I scaled back and bought just enough for a vest. There is some virtue to finishing things that you start, and since I had finally finished the three-block-breastplate t-shirt I started earlier, I figured I was nearly there. I had never made a vest before, but the pattern seemed pretty simple: four pieces–two fronts, a back, and a collar.

Help from Alix to determine most likely measurements, about 4 inches less in girth than sidewinder.

And Cathy is the last woman in tech shop today (running the laser cutter til midnight) and agrees to model.

I guess it can be worn with a skirt after all.

Sidewindrette?

Couldn’t stare at the laptop anymore. I’m pulling a rib from sidewinder to make… Sidewindrette.

Couldn’t find any pink camo stretch denim so keeping it basic with charcoal and black.
