The “Hasenfeffer Incorporated” Project
I did not make this jacket. Let’s get that out of the way. Remember-my projects will be small. Tiny. Except for next week’s since my favorite projects have been ones where some real sewing has taken place.
I decided to re-do the TV Challenge. I made a dress inspired by Denise Huxtable but what I had really wanted to to do was Laverne from Laverne and Shirley. I know she normally wears her L on the front of her tops but I didn’t want to put mine there. I will probably want to wear this jacket to work and I feel like the S on the front will take away from my edge and the professional, put together image I want to project when I’m there. I am open to putting it on the front if I ever find a really sweet sweater since then it would be more of a “look”. You know what I mean?
I know it’s only a part time seasonal job but guess what? They’ve offered me a job! Starting in January I will begin working full time doing what I love to do. Thank you God!
I didn’t have any ribbon so what I did was take some stretchy type bias tape that I used once to make some undies and ironed a piece of Wonder Under to it. I then folded it in half and ironed it shut. then I ironed another strip of wonder under to it. I drew the S on the way I wanted it then ironed the piece of tape to it. I was able to get the curves nice and smooth because of the stretch of the tape. I sewed it into place by hand.
I wonder if you all know why I sewed an S and not a G. It’s because my name is actually Soo Jin. Gina is a nickname I’ve had since I was a baby.
So there it is.
Fabric or notions: I used jacket from Salvation Army $4.99 and a little bit of bias tape from stash
Time to make: about an hour
Wear Again: I haven’t worn it but I’m sure I will
I looked up the lyrics for the Laverne and Shirley song and picked it Hasenfeffer Incorporated. I called it a project because I didn’t know what else to call it.
We’re almost there ladies! I’ve missed connecting with you more. I don’t have much time to visit the site these days but I do look at the pictures. You’re all as amazing as ever!
