SOOOOOOOOOOOOO, being home all alone, and feeling good today because I refused to take the non-drowsy Ibuprofen, I sewed all day. I made a pinecone dress today. It is my muslin of the pattern I downloaded to copy with my SFD Dress Kit.
Here is the Kwik Sew pattern I wanted to copy. I would tell you the number, but as far as I can tell, it doesn't HAVE a number.
And HERE is my SFD copy of that dress on Lucy. I used pinecones for my muslin, and it turned out good enough to wear. Only thing is, I may need to become a Go-Go Granny because when I sit down, the slit wants to reveal my entire lower half! I actually have spun around a pole before in some exercise class I used to take.
The Kwik Sew pattern has a seam down center front. I did not want a seam down center front, so I made a facing for the hem.
Here is how I drew the bottom of the front and back to make a facing for the slit up center front from the hem. Pardon all the lines. I change my mind all the time. By the time I get these patterns finished, I have a roll of regular tape -- a roll of removable tape -- and five colors of marker all over the paper and myself!
I almost forgot,
to show you my daisy shorts.
Remember the Burda pattern I downloaded? I got the puzzle all cut out and put together, and then I noticed that the BIGGEST size available was too small for me. I wasn't familiar with 38, 40, 42 and 44. I figured 42 meant 42 hips, and mine are 41, so that should work. NO!!!! That is not right. I still don't know what the numbers stand for, but it isn't MY HIPS!
I had to alter the pattern quite a bit in the waist and the hip, but it was really big in the leg opening. I have the shorts done except for the waistband. Here are my daisy shorts on Lucy. Pretty cute, I think. Maybe a tad short for a granny, but I don't care. I can wear them at home and have flashbacks to the olden days when I used to have pretty legs that men whistled at.
My swing has been neglected today, and I haven't had supper. Gotta get.
