Oh, I certainly know how to attract the readers, don't I?
Where was I? Well, after I made that yellow cut-out muslin I showed in the last post, I blithely made the alterations I thought I would need and cut into my red/white/blue double-sided shwe shwe. The result is....OK. The fit through the bodice is a bit loose for my liking. I tossed it into the wash and dried it on high heat, since I hear that's how the best couturiers do it at Chanel.
OK, maybe not. It actually helped a bit, but I would still like to open up the side seams and do a bit of fussing about with the fit.
I also made a vest from a 1980 Style pattern my mother gave me. I have had a morbid fear of vests since the '90s, due to these attrocities:
|(I take exception to this "Mom's To Do List": Up at 8am?!? Sleep at 10pm?!? What kind of slacker's paradise does this Mom live in?)|
|Taken by a 3 year old using an iPhone. Doesn't look so bad now that you know the backstory, does it? ;)|
|Tiny pocket for my stash. And by stash I mean candy.|
More to follow tomorrow, that's if I'm not exhausted from my vest-inspired "busy" Mom day of sleeping in, going to bed early, and not going to work. Pft.
