Let's do the informal poll first, to get it out of the way. I'm still having absolutely no luck with fixing the sidebars, and the creator of the template doesn't seem to be answering my blog comment to ask about it. So I wanted to ask those of you that are kind enough to read this blog in the first place what you think I should do about it. Are the ridiculously long link lists in the sidebars too annoying to deal with? Would this be more reader-friendly if I went back to a regular Blogger-created template and tried to customize it from there? Or, to keep the look, should I put a limit on the number of finished projects links, at least? I still like the look, but the sidebars are kind of bothering me. As is the fact that I have to double-space all paragraphs to get it to read right (at least on my computer.)
Ok, on to the crafty fun stuff. I finished this up last week, but didn't have a chance to take photos until today.
darker green previous test version of the Burda shirt serged together on Saturday. But I wanted to make this one look different somehow, so I wouldn't have two virtually identical shirts in two different shades of green. So this is part of how I'm (hopefully) going to make that happen. A bit tedious, doing all of this hand-pleating, but I'm hoping the results will be worth it!
