I am happy to say after about five weeks of a great deal of hand sewing, my AC sweater tunic is done. I wore it today with great pride even though most people do not know what goes into a garment like this.
I found it very time consuming, but challenging. I have a jacket and a skirt yet to go. I think I will need a break before I start on another one of these projects.
You do definitely feel accomplished after you are done.
