I haven't blogged in 2 weeks, because, while I have been sewing, I have nothing to show for it. My dress I am designing for class is going good, but slow. (Because I just work on it in class.) My princess seam dress needs to start over from the beginning, and the knit top I muslined from Simplicity 2554 was a disaster. (Me have a knit top disaster? Never!) (Always!) (Someday I will find a knit top pattern that I don't despise.)
I have a plan to make something that doesn't require endless fittings and muslins, but I'm not gonna talk about it because I don't want to jinx it. Not that I am superstitious. But seriously. It's been a while since I have had a successful project.
I am going to help myself not think about it, by posting my 60s and 70s patterns for the Sewing Through the Decades challenge. (I am so happy there is no deadlines for this. Right now, I am just having fun picking stuff out.)
I like the fact that the gathers under the bust are very small. Normally, I would not gravitate to this style, but I think there are a lot of things about it that might make it flattering on me.
Ok. Back to the struggle.
