LOL! I have some earth-shaking advice for you today.
Don't try on a new garment when you just got out of bed and you are still in your pajamas!
The blouse that I hated on Sunday -- which I realize was actually 2 days ago -- is now my new favorite blouse.
Insane, I know. It is the one where the armhole is cut so low, I could hang my boob out of it! I used the "Hawaiian" print that I thought wasn't very nice so I used it for my muslin.
Yesterday, I emailed Peggy Sagers about the Grand Canyon armhole, and she emailed me about 5 times back and forth. It was her usual lecture:
Have you watched the videos?
Watch them again!
Measure an armhole in a garment you like.
Measure the cap of a sleeve you know you like.
There is NOTHING wrong with the pattern. There is just something wrong with you! (My loose interpretation.)
I wish she would have just said that Sizes 1 through 4 have small armholes, and the 5W through 8W have big armholes, instead of saying to just pick the finished measurements you want your blouse to be.
After I decided on Sunday that I hated the Hawaiian print blouse with the GC armhole, I picked out another muslin. This time, I picked a cotton print that I thought I could wear to the next Cock Fight I don't go to. They actually have those down here where we live. I TOLD you I live in the deep woods! This print looks like a rooster's feathers got caught in a tornado and ended up on this blouse.
