The fabric is currently available Ikea stock -- They call it Fjallfly, but schmeebot and I have dubbed it "Melty Trees". If you look closely at the print, there are all kinds of zany things tucked in there: bows on trees, mushrooms, transparent houses, newsprint, lost shoes, hedgehogs ...
Here are the back and side views. I matched the print on the back seam but did not bother on the sides ... too hard to do that and make sure the parts of the design I like most landed on the skirt!
I think it looks a bit puffy in the ass, and would take an inch or two outta there for my next one. (There will be a next one). schmeebot says it's perfect as-is, leave well enough alone. What do you think?
There's nothing new to say about the construction of a Pacific Moon, at least not until I actually make the tutorial. The yoke fabric's quilting cotton as per usual. I did line mine, with some gold mystery fabric that came in a Fabric Mart bundle. Oh how I love those bundles! I've gotten several over the past year, and they've contained some strange and wonderful treasures (and a few WTFs). Now to wrap my head around them and sew them up into something.
As you can see from the above, finished garment photography finally happened, so I will be showing you my Sewaholic Almas soon. This month does not hold a lot of sewing time for me, but I'm certainly still thinking about it (mainly while driving to and from work ... it's a 25 mile commute). So maybe I'll share my half-baked ideas, if only so I don't forget them. And then there's that other hobby I keep mentioning. So, expect a few more posts from me soon!
