Here's Adam willingly sporting for the camera his new Sketchbook shirt and Sandbox pants.
His willingness to model is wearing thin but I can see that the pants hems are a little long as are the shirt sleeve cuffs. Both are size 2 and next time around I'll make the necessary adjustment.
Okay so now he want to hold the camera.
Quickly I slipped on him the Basic Blazer pattern from Blank Slate; Melly Sews........
...but he was not going to co-operate by standing up for the photo. He wanted to hold the camera, no ifs, ands or buts!
The blazer was easy and quick to make. Foolishly, I used a faux suede that doesn't have much body even with plenty of stabilizer. It was impossible to iron and doesn't hold the front lapels properly.
Now our model is winding up to full tantrum because I'm not letting him have my camera. But just look at those back pockets ... too cute, huh?
Here we are in full melt down. I like the faux suede fabric because it doesn't crease so next time I'll use it for a dress, maybe the School Photo Dress.
Here I am offering my auxiliary camera .... it's a Canon ..... but no, he wants my Nikon.
I'm going to make this blazer again using a more structured fabric. Oh and with bemberg lining too.
