Last week I continued to toile my Orb Weaver shirt. Here is the process:
I constructed and inserted my vent and cuff to both sleeves.
When bias binding my vent I noticed that the stitching was still visible which I would have to watch out for in my final garment.
One problem that I had was that the sleeve was slightly bigger than the cuff so I had two choices take the sleeve in at the seam or insert some pleats.
I decided to insert two pleats, one either side of the vent.
I decided to try the second cuff the other way round than the first and I prefer the second one with the two lines on the outside as I feel it has a better effect.
One change that I will make for my final garment is to make sure that the second pleat lies the other way so that everything is lying the same way.
I then hemmed the garment I turned it up by 0.5cm then 1cm but then I only stitched at 0.5cm which left a really ugly over hang.
I then re-did it by turning the hem up 0.5cm then 0.6cm and sewed at 0.5cm which had a much better effect.
The next step was to add the chains. I didn't know whether to attach the vertical chains to the horizontal chains so I sampled them both.
I decided that I preferred them just attached to the fabric.
I then attached them using jumprings.
This is this toile completed.
What do you think?
