I'm listening to Nick Cave right now because I feel in the mood for something completely awesome.
Truth be told, I'm still on burn out from that blasted jacket. I kinda hate that I am, too. I didn't expect the recovery time to be this long, but I just don't want to do anything complicated in sewing right now. Yuck.
But it's getting cold, and I got this massive amount of cotton calico from the thrift store (like 6 yards for $4!) so I decided to pick myself up and make a blouse.
I'm using my 40s blouse reproduction because I haven't made it yet and I LOVE the look of it.
It's no where near as complex as that blasted jacket, but it does require thinking and I'm so not up for that now. But you gotta start somewhere, right?
I love it when the sloper darts match up to the pattern. I didn't even have to try on this one!
The good thing is thinking is at a minimum when you have slopers.
I just line the pattern to the sloper and piece accordingly. Its so awesome.
Under most circumstances I'd do a mock up, but I've had such success lately
with fitting that I'm gonna risk it with my $4 fabric.
I have everything cut and all I need to do is mark the pieces and overlock them. I'm a bit worried about that. My serger is on it's last leg, and I'm strapped for cash to get a new motor for it. Crap. What am I gonna do!? I guess get an estimate and start saving. Its a five cone with a differential feed, it's worth saving.
There is always something, right :)
