We did watch Rev. John Hagee this morning from Cornerstone Church in San Antonio. It was a very interesting message. It was about Mary Magdalene and how all of us have the idea that she was a prostitute. WHERE did we get that idea??? The Bible doesn't ever say she was a prostitute. It says she had seven devils cast out. The Bible doesn't even say the name of the woman caught in adultery.
After "church" (we always watch on our computers), Jerry started working on 2011 taxes -- we JUST finished 2010 -- and I started working on my Sure-Fit Designs version of New Look 6808. It takes me forever to do what Glenda could do in ten minutes. I can make the entire blouse in less than a day, but it takes me days to make a pattern because of the wierd revisions I have to make to it.
Wierd revisions such as my shoulders. I have them on my door, you know:
Yep, that's them right there. I have had Jerry draw them and Phylly draw them and even tried to draw them myself. I highly recommend you DON'T try to do it yourself because it is IMPOSSIBLE!!! In that picture, the shoulder on the left is actually my RIGHT shoulder, and the shoulder on the right is my LEFT shoulder. Just getting that right took me quite awhile. I would walk over and stand up next to them. QUIT laughing!!!
There is no pattern in the world that is going to allow for your shoulders being different than each other. Pattern companies assume you are built like a Barbie doll with even shoulders and boobs up under your chin.
This is the FRONT. I needed to shave the armhole inward
and add width from under the bust down to the
hem to match the New Look blouse. Shoulder tip was the same.
I believe the addition of width to the front and NOT the back
means that my stomach is bigger than my butt!!!
This is the BACK. All I needed here was to bring the armhole inward quite a bit.
The shoulder point was the same.
I also had to lower the neckline to make it a boatneck, but that was no problem. I actually get that part.
