So yeah, I took it again. Manhatten.
Way back when I was preggo last time and I was making all those roomy Twinkle Sews designs, I had some hard words for Twinkle and her illogical pattern layouts and confusing instructions. But here I am, back again. Of course everything I said is true, but you know I gotta hand it to her–she has some pretty cool designs. They’re just special, is what they are. I pretty much wore the tuna salad out of the first Take Manhatten, and Poetry in Motion was another big fave. And I have plans to print another million pages and puzzle my way through her instructions some more because I like her designs that much.
The cowl is supposed to be lined, but I felt like it would be too stiff so I decided to ditch the second layer and just add some bias tape to the neck seam, and then turn the end of the cowl under to create the casing.
Fun. I really love it. Not sure my pear shaped figure is rocking the loose a-line silhouette, but I don’t really care. Still gonna wear the tuna salad out of it. Have you ever sewn any Twinkle designs? What side of the fence do you fall with her?
