I had about come to the conclusion that the NSA had been monitoring my Blog, and they decided I was some kind of dangerous over-zealous Christian -- won't dare type the "T" word -- so they broke my blog. Every time I tried to post, an error message came up that said "Error On Page". The icons at the top of this page are still all jumbled together, and I can't even see some of them, but I am typing, and the words are sticking to the page, so I shall continue.
My latest projects are in the trash. I used fabric I purchased from Gorgeous Fabrics to make two SFD knit tops. The fit was fine, of course, but I HATED the fabric. It was like sewing on a rubber band. It had a lot of stretch, but it didn't want to relax at all. It wanted to stay super tight and UNstretched, and it fit me like paint on a wall. The 2nd version had a lot of extra seam allowance in it, but I still hated it. I must remember not to buy that strange fabric again. Its content was Nylon/Acetate/Lycra and it was called Swiss 4-Way Stretch. I HIGHLY DON'T RECOMMEND IT!
Most of yesterday, I worked on my Louis Cutting Relax-A-Little pattern to TRY to change the shoulder slope. This pattern has a yoke, and the shoulder line goes through the yoke without seams there. You have to cut on that line -- make the adjustment -- and somehow, get the pieces back together.
That is where I am about to begin this morning. I am going to do a muslin first using this fabric:
YIKES! No pictures would work, so I did some investigating. Evidently, Blogger no longer likes Internet Explorer 8, and my computer won't allow me to have anything later than that. I had to try Chrome to get this blog page posted. When I put a picture here, I get about 1,000 weird looking letter/number combinations, but when you look at it, you are supposed to see a picture. Hope you can!
No way to put a video here -- yet! If anyone knows more than I do, PLEASE ADVISE!!!
Notice my "Nida" buttons -- IF you can see a picture -- and let me know what ones you like. I had so much fun playing with my button candy last night.
I'm going to go take a shower before someone changes the way it works!
