I made a new video of my latest SFD copy. It is a new McCall's pattern, M7358. So new, it isn't even in the stores yet. I had to try to figure out the facings and finishing from the pictures I show you in this video and hereinbelow. (I just made that word up, I guess, since spell check says it does not exist.)
This blue blouse has NO DARTS. I put the bust dart into the front yoke as gathers. I think my yokes are a little higher than the pattern, but I can't tell for sure. I don't intend to walk around holding these pictures of the original up in front of me.
I wasn't sure how to figure out how much to gather the back. I think I added four inches.
I am FIGHTING the urge to go to Hancock's to buy some blue denim that matches the blouse. I know I have some at my other house. I'm making myself be still in this chair while I talk to you instead.
AND, my friend Deb just finished her first Fast N Fun knit top like the four I made a few weeks ago. Terry is making one today also. Hopefully, I can get pics of both for you. Wait! I might have one of Deb's top....
It isn't completely done in this pic, and it looks MUCH BETTER on her, but you will get the idea:
I MISS TERRY!!!!
We have quilts that need to be quilted, and talking that needs to be talked, and laughter that needs to be laughed!!!
I will see Margaret tomorrow for lunch. That will get me by, although Margaret doesn't quilt, and she has no interest in learning. When you are as pretty as she is, you don't need to know how to sew!
'Til Soon --
