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.
