I’ve switched my schedule around since I’ve started working again. I don’t want to neglect my family when I get home, so I keep that time for Tristan and Tanya.

I use to stay up late and work, but I started to realize that I’m not at my best at the end of the day. So now I’m getting up at 2:00 in the morning and working until I have to leave at 7:00

I like it, but I hate having to kill the momentum, and pull off of whatever project I’m doing to get ready for work.

Today I made the two strips down the front of the shirt (not sure what those are called) and a pair cuffs.

One of the cuffs is already attached, I used the same system of hot glue instead of sewing. I’m not the best at sewing, so it works well for me.

Looking really good!!

You can also get an adhesive called Fabri-Tac that's made for garment work, and won't burn your fingers. Works really well.

Jeff, you are stylin'! That is looking perfect for the piece.

Getting up at 2am to work shows enormous devotion to what you are doing. Pulling away for a job is very hard. I think your solution is better than staying up late somehow.

fyi "In modern usage, the term placket often refers to the double layers of fabric that hold the buttons and buttonholes in a shirt."

I love the way the shirt hangs. Especially that you added some cuffs. Will you be changing the hands skintone to match that of the face?

Thanks Darkstrider, I'll look around at the craft store and see if I can find some.

I'm determined to stay with it this time Shelley. Thanks for the comment!

Thanks Jardley, I am planning on matching the hands to the face somehow. These hands I made quite a while ago before I really new what the character would look like.
