Hello lovely people.
I'm off my game. I don't know what it is, if its stress or not, but my sewing is not at my usual standards.
Twice I've tried and twice the dress is too big and ill fitting. I really, really need to go back and look at my muslin (again), and the drape of the skirt because I'm getting that blasted 'pointed' drape thing at the sides. I hate that. The angle of the seam is too sharp. I'll have to soften it.
But, in other news, I've decided to move onto blouses. I was looking in my closets and everything, and I do mean everything, is either too big, too hot or too, just too. It's May, for heaven's sake, and I'm still wearing sweaters. Why? Because I'm strange. Oh, I'm really strange.
I need to 'feminine' it up a bit more when it comes to separates. Plus, I love wearing skirts in hot weather. Give a good breeze down there, if you know what I mean. I need some basic A line skirts and some nice tops to go over them. So... I'm back to my original wrap dress pattern, the blouse addition.
I know, I know. It's just that it's fast, it's cute, and it fits my figure. Plus, like a lot of the sweaters I wear (or have dyed) it wraps because I seem to not be able to get a grasp on my size changing despite al the measuring I'm doing.
I'm working with some cotton lawns (the brown one is 40s) and some light rayons. Super drapey, super light, and great for summer. If I work at it, I can knock one out in a say.
The thing with lawn is that if I do it right, I'm going to bias tape the edges. I think that's why I like this pattern so much, it's got no collar so it's easy to make.
Ugh. When did I go from having a close(s) full of clothes to no clothes at all?
Oh well, sewing awaits, but after I troll netflix for Korean dramas :) (I love those!).
Have a great day!
