You know, sometimes a girl such as I, who basks in the luxury of a decadent, carefree lifestyle of hummingbird tongue niblets and having Colin Firth give me pedicures while Jeremy Northam makes me a frappe, likes to shrug off her ocelot capelet and wear something everyday. It makes me feel ‘down with the people’ as they say. So I tried Simplicity 2936-
Lately I’ve been sewing alot of tiny rompers for someone special and I have probably developed a little obsession with my snap press. Seriously, I’m starting to think a little hammering will solve anything! It does get the GD cat off the sewing table, I’ll give you that!
So I blew off button holes and gave it black pearl snaps. I tell you, I’m thinking of installing a gong and then Bruderlein can strike it to announce my millionth snap hammered into innocent fabric. Hopefully this will happen before Liesl runs off with the striker or Mr B confiscates my hammer. Got to work fast!!
Oh, but where to wear something so casual- it’s far too subtle for my Marie Antoinette lifestyle of tiny dogs and soirees. Perhaps some pictures in the front yard of our servants quarters- this isn’t MY front door of course…..
This has alot of collar and sleeve options, but my favorite option is to tuck or not to tuck the front and back. I did one on either side front and back and felt that it was just right- yes, not to baggy, not too constricting. Basically the fit is for me, the porridge that Goldilocks ate- just right. Check out my dandy little sleeve rabbit ears. My underarms have gotten amazing reception today with this on.
Well, I’d better go and dress for dinner. Thanks for popping by.
