If you sew,
If you sew with knits,
If you ever WANT to learn to sew knits,
GET THE BOOK!
It is wonderful.
Phylly and I already have Fit for Real People and Pants for Real People. Both are also amazing!
MORE information than you could ever dream of and very well done, as always, in the P&P books.
And I have only read about 10 pages so far!
I woke up at midnight with a cough and runny nose, as I often do. I sauntered in the dark into the kitchen to find some cough syrup, and I took some of it. Then I took a couple Aleve because my husband thinks that is a good way to stop my nose from running, and he doesn't like me taking the allergy meds. He is a Pharmacist, so he knows all the bad stuff about drugs. I like to take NyQuil Liquigels before bed at night because they get me through the entire night, but he says they have Acetaminophen in them, and that can cause your liver to drop out -- or something!
So ANYWAY, it is 2:13 AM, and I have been awake since midnight. I think the cough syrup is keeping me awake. HOW NUTTY IS THAT!? It is supposed to make you drowsy.
I made a short video this afternoon showing you the Sure-fit Designs blouse I tried to make a new "style" out of. It has some bagginess in the upper chest which I have since remedied in the paper pattern. I will try it in a little different version tomorrow using the blue butterflies.
I don't know if these things are called "tucks" or "pleats". Neither term seems right. I may try vertical pleats in the next version.
I went down TWO DOTS for this blueprint. I like the fit right now, but I better not gain that weight back!
