puppy proofing my self-made wardrobe
Each Wednesday, I post little snippets about what’s happening, and what I’m working on.
Most of this week was focused on finishing up my first “Archer” button up shirt. It’s now finished – except for the buttons & button holes. I’m hoping to pick up some buttons tomorrow and actually finish it over the weekend.
This is step one in puppy proofing my self-made wardrobe. My dad got a new puppy a couple months ago, and as it turns out my Graphic Silk Circle Skirt (with it’s handkerchief hem), and my Deconstructed Sweater (with it’s extra long sleeves, giant cowl, and dangling threads) are just too tempting for a 4 month old puppy, so when I went to visit for Thanks giving, my sleeves & hems spent a lot of time in the puppy’s mouth.
Luckily nothing ripped, but I’d rather not tempt fate. So step one to puppy proofing my self-made wardrobe is a basic button up shirt that I can just throw on, with no dangling threads, or giant cowls.
And step two is jeans. Step two might not happen by the next time I visit, but either way, it really needs to happen soon. (Which I’ve been saying since week six…)
I also finished up the sleeves of my purple raglan cardigan. I was worried I’d run out of yarn, but I had enough (yay!) and now the sweater just needs a ton of ends woven in (one of the downsides of knitting a sweater completely out of order), a soak and a block.
I could be wrong, but I think you’re the only one of us who made an Archer in December. My excuse is my jeans are taking much longer in the fit department than I would like! Can’t wait to see your shirt!
You’re right Melissa, I’m making a second Archer with everyone, I just desperately wanted a basic button up shirt so I jumped the gun on the first shirt. 🙂
I’m basing my jeans pattern on a store bought pair, so I’m hoping against hope that the fit issues are minimal.
Great idea to puppy proof your clothing, at least you can than have some worry free playtime 😀 Can’t wait to see your cardigan all sewn up.
Yes please! to worry free puppy playtime.
The purple cardigan is actually a purple pullover (oops!), either way I can’t wait to finish it either. 🙂
