I thought it would be cool to just zip out another cute little top, especially since B had gotten me matching material...all handy like!!!
But...it was not to be! The freshly purchased, perfectly matching, mauve fabric from HANCOCK'S (now going Out-of-BIZness in my location!!! Shocking right????) was permanently stained...despite all sorts of treatments and 4-5 washings! What to do? Well...I had a bit of grey, light weight suiting, from which I had already cut a Morris Blazer. So....April Fool's!!! NOPE! Not me! Foolishness foiled with facile fickle fabric function!
With that naughty April Fool's Day prank avoided....What could possibly go wrong??? Hmmm.... I present: Morris Blazer No. 3 (Here's a link to prior Morris adventures: Spring/summer sewing: Lissette passport and Morris Blazer
Beautiful, yes? Well...it had been perfect. And I mean PERFECT!!!! Not a difficult thing to stitch up. But, it was my third...and the most difficult part is making a strange, yet perfect corner for the collar. And this one? A thing of beauty! One go. No puckers. No questionable edges. Perfection. Until the April Fool ironed (read: MELTED!!!!!!!!!!!!) it!
