remake that céline shirt in man size
heres a quick fit.
Been playing around with Optitex, not entirely sure if I like it over drafting by hand. The 3D simulation should be helpful but getting curves just right is a headache and I'm too much of a perfectionist to just wing it close. Working on a pair of bondage pants with HL inspiration. Also need to retrieve my sewing machine which is now in storage at my brother's place
Also, trying to wrap my head around making patterns for the drapey shit is beginning to feel futile. Probably would be easier to wantonly take scissors to fabric

so waxing that jacket didn't work out so well. i washed the wax off, but in the wash the jacket got a lot lighter, so now its more of a pink shade maybe at some point i'll buy another bottle of dye and dye it darker. not sure how much i'll wear it as is except maybe to hipster bars with desi and friends. idk.

in response to this, I dyed the jacket again in a more concentrated solution and i'm much, much happier with the result. I'm going to buy some more RIT and dye it once more to get it where I want it. also, I've since learned that washing with a cup of vinegar helps to set the dye, so I'll definitely be doing that once I get the color proper.
