Happy Friday one and all!
Gee, where to begin! It's been a crazy week. Just got word at work that my department is getting more people. Like 6 or seven! So I have to look through tons of portfolios and choose the right people for the jobs. Plus set up a new department and get all the needed stuff ready. Whew! Its exciting.
On top of that, I've been dancing my 'arce off, but last night, because I stayed late at work, I decided not to go dancing and that was a good decision. I got home about 6:30 last night and decided to take a 'quick nap'. Turns out waking up at 12:30AM means you've had you night's sleep! So here I am!
As for the blouse I posted earlier this week, I'm thinking this, although a good design, is too finite for my size changing. I had to take in the blouse 1 1/2" already.
Here is a linen blouse that I'm nearly finished with. This will be my last blouse from this pattern.
I can't keep up, and considering I have to sew a lot of clothes for Camp Hollywood, I need to make clothes that I can adjust in size in case I need to.
I'm looking into making some bias cut wrap skirts, which I've ordered fabric for this morning. I have a linen bias cut skirt that I for to the Cicada club last Sunday and I just LOVED the swoosh of it! So cool and feminine feeling! It's too big now (2" in the waist) so I'm thinking of tracing it off to make up a pattern.
These would make GREAT skirts. They are all with rayon or cotton and on their way to me, yay!!
|I see this one as a chevron design.|
I'm also looking a taking the bodices from some wrap dresses and converting them into blouses like I did with this last blouse.
Help me pick one.
|I'm leaning toward this one.|
|I've always wanted to make this one.|
|I could alter my last PPP pattern and make|
|Although this one is not a wrap pattern,|
I think it *could* work, thoughts?
And this will be my weekend. I'm taking a dancing hiatus for 48 hours in order to get some sewing done! It has to be this way, reluctantly.
