I'm making Lu's REAL blouse now out of the oh-so-beautiful fabric I bought from The Cloth Merchants at the going out of business sale. I am sewing long distance via email now. I need for Lu to try on this blouse as it is a drapier knit fabric than the muslin.
ALSO, I was pretty sure Lu has a low shoulder just like me, so I decided to have Phylly find that out for me yesterday. Here is the picture I drew and sent via email to show Phylly EXACTLY what I wanted to know.
A picture IS worth a thousand words you know!
I wanted Lu to stand against the wall. Then Phylly was to GET ON A LADDER and mark on post-it notes stuck on the wall behind her shoulders where her shoulder tips were. The Phylly was to measure from each mark down to the floor, and tell me the difference.
My picture must be pretty good, because she emailed back that her right shoulder was 1/2" LOWER than her left -- just like mine. I then made the corrections to the blouse.
I sewed up the shoulders and the side seams. The blouse was SO GORGEOUS -- and since it had the same shoulder adjustment I do for myself, I HAD to try it on.
Check it out:
A blouse on Lu. A mini dress on me. I TOLD you she is tall.
I think that even though this is definitely Fall colors, I could still wear it because it is so bright. I might order some more of this fabric for myself.
And here is me -- in my swing -- this morning -- talking to you like you are right there with me on the patio.
