Natalie Chanin calls her work "Slow Design" and she is not wrong. First I found the jersey. Washed it. Pressed it. Traced off the pattern. Cut it out. Cut out the jersey pieces. Located Mylar to use for a stencil. Located fabric paint. Cut the repeats in the stencil. Printed half my fabric pieces. Printed the other half.
Almost time to sew.
Slow, but I love every bit of it. These pieces will be backed by another layer of jersey, and each leaf shape will be outlined by a running stitch. Then I'll sew them together into a fitted top. But not this day.
