April 30

I've spent the last three nights trying to adjust a simple pattern (Heather Ross's Summer Blouse from Weekend Sewing) to my non-standard body shape (B cup I am not). Drafting is hard without a dress form, a helper, or instructions. There's been a lot of trial and even more error. But at last, after three king sized sheets and about ten hours snipping, stitching, and cursing, I think I'm ready to cut into the 'good' fabric.

Oh yeah, and I got a haircut too.

Very nice haircut!

Oh, and I thought I'd just remind you that pattern adjustment is not so easy, even with a helper ;)

Ugh, I know your pain! Can't wait to see the FO.

Hashi - After reading about your efforts to make this blouse, I finally wandered over to see the book and the other patterns (and as a result got distracted for a good mighty long time ;-) Yeah, cough, thanks for that. LOL!). The blouse looks so cute -- worth all the adjustments! With your finished blouse and haircut, bet you're feeling ready for the summer?
