A Wadder and a Possible LA Sewing Meetup?
So, I had not sewn a stitch since the evacuation. My machines were still packed up and my sewing room was in disarray. Apparently I don’t have that neatness gene and am completely incapable of putting away patterns after using them. But yesterday I scraped a clear space on the cutting table and cut out some bibs for friend and a maxi skirt for myself.
The bibs came out okay, but the skirt is a complete and utter wadder.
The fabric was so pretty too, but just too look at. It was one of those clingy knits. And I tried to force it into being a yoga waistband skirt. So wrong on so many levels. In addition to being a failure, I have come to the conclusion that this kind of skirt does not flatter my figure. A yoga waistband treatments demands a yoga stomach, a flat one. I do not have that kind of stomach. Never did, even before I had the little boy. Sigh. That skirt was kinds of wrong on me. And as much as I loved the print, it didn’t look good as a skirt. I think I will save it to use as a drapey top. That is, as soon as the sting of the wadder has worn off.
Anyhoo, at least there was some sewing.
In other sewing news, I’m thinking of going up to LA for the day sometime in the next two weeks before Jack gets out of school. Anyone game for a shopping meet up?
