Goodness! I can't seem to get decent pictures of this blouse. The pattern on it seems to be moving or defective or something. Maybe it is one of those patterns that looks weird when broken up with darts.
I washed this blouse last night and ALL THE MARKS came out after spraying with Shout. I had marked it with every kind of marker I own too. I took it out of the washer and hung it to dry, and it barely needs ironing. In fact, these pictures are taken with me wearing it UNironed. I have tried and tried to get a picture to show the cute bow, but you can barely see it. Maybe I should have put a black bow on it. I made several videos to show Rebecca how to do the sleeve. I'm sure they will be a complete bore if you don't sew.
I am not sure I got all the videos downloaded yet, so if they aren't here tonight, check back tomorrow.
I know the hem looks like a roller coaster, but I suppose that is because I can't stand still OR maybe the thing is crooked. Jerry will tell me when he gets back home.
In one of my sleeve videos, I showed how I finished the neck WITHOUT the facings the New Look patten called for. It worked out so good, I may never use a facing again.
I made a video of me wearing it with all the marks still in it. I am going to post it here just for my own reference, but you are welcome to watch it too. I talk about ETA and Cynthia Guffey. I'll post what happens in her classes this year after next weekend. I am wearing this blouse so she doesn't yell at me for wearing KNIT because NOTHING ELSE FITS!
Following is the link to me demo'ing a wonderful way to easily gather the ease in the sleevecap:
Plus, I have to do about a thousand sit-ups to try to get my stomach to go down before ETA. I have said all year long that I am going to lose at least five pounds before the next ETA. Well, it starts this Friday, so I better get busy!!!
