So I have been thinking about the flying squirrel frock – ‘FSF’ for short, and just haven’t gotten to making the final adjustments and ok, fine, everyone has a stash of ‘non-quite there yets’ and UFO’s right? Well, the universe at Sew Weekly is conspiring to make me get back to my Squirrel wrangling.
Yes! The pattern for the Make This look is Simplicity 2180! The number I cry out during bad dreams that involve falling and Scooby-Doo villians! Come on, give me a break- I swear I’ll get back to her!
Exhibit B- This weeks Sew Weekly project is ‘The Return of the UFO’s’ !
So I got in that sewingroom this morning did some work:
After unstitching the band tie from both sides up to the shoulders, I trimmed off 2″ and tapered it back into the facings.
The Viola moment!
So sfter I stitch it back together- no more Flying Squirrel! My husband said that it would always be the Flying Squirrel Frock in his mind, an endearment rather than a label.
