Red Echo

August 20, 2008

I had some time free last night, so I picked up that sewing project from last month and took it a bit further. I opened up the side seams and re-cut them for a better fit, then hemmed the edges, put in a dozen eyelets, and laced each side together with thick black cotton cord. There’s a nice 2″ gap running up each side-seam now. I may eventually sew a panel in behind the lacing, but for now I’m just going to take this now-sleeveless jacket to Burning Man and wear it as a vest. I will have one new project on the playa this year after all.
