I feel an urgency about covering up the purple sheet fabric on the robe. Gravitating toward dark colors and silks. Ripping and pinning and piecing.
I’m thinking of the project in phases: large, medium, and small. The “large” is done, that was the major base pieces. Now I’m in the “medium”, which is coating, still with fairly big pieces of cloth. I’ve had to sprinkle “small” in here and there to maintain some momentum, like the pink moon patch and the magic nine-patches. Soon it will be mostly “small.”
I’ll need to sew in the pockets. I’m going to reuse pockets rescued from the pair of pants already scavenged for the dark strips.
Lots of beginner’s design thinking, like about my need for symmetry and straight lines. What if I didn’t need so much symmetry? What if I threw in some curves? Thus I made the red and brown strips asymmetrical. A very tentative move!
