Phylly and I couldn't wait to get together for lunch today at TGIF. She had a hard weekend with her 3 grandkids who stay with her every weekend, and I had a horrible time with the Window World boss this morning. Windows STILL not here. It has been 28 days. I will spare you the details, as it took me six pages just to record them this morning.
When Phylly got out of her car, guess what she had on????
Yep! That is my original Muslin #1 of Relax A Little. I love that fabric, and I really hated to toss it. I'm so glad Phylly fits into LC patterns with only an FBA. I had done an FBA in this, so it was plenty big for her. She is so much shorter than I am, that the length was just right for her too. All she had to do was put buttons and buttonholes.
The pants are from her Sure-fit Designs Pants Kit. Nice crotch in those! She could make the legs a little narrower, and I think she did that in her next pair. Isn't she cute?
I came back from lunch and I sewed all afternoon, although I sure don't have much to show for it. I made so many errors, I was beginning to wonder if I even know how to sew at all! I sewed the two fronts on the wrong shoulder of the back piece. When I looked at the blouse to match up the side seams, they were hanging down center front, and center fronts were hanging down the sides! Thank goodness, I had enough fabric to cut another back and front from my muslin fabric. I will have to make a very short sleeve, but it may be wearable.
Maybe pics tomorrow.
I will show you the fabric I am getting ready to make though. You remember my new red pants. How can you forget bright red pants? I just happened to have this gorgeous fabric in my stash, so it will soon be a blouse to go with the red pants.
