This vaguelly suicidal model shot did not inspire me. The tech drawing did. It has more shape to it than the model gives it and I think they used my fav technique of hiding figure issues with a gaudy print. What it Butterick- I’m having that copyrit!
I was hoping for a frisky little work blouse and I got a bit of a cropped muumuu. I tapered the sides in greatly and even considered a back pleat, but I decided to just go for ‘figure skimming’. I’m pleased, I think it’s a cute little make and I enjoyed the sew.
This pattern has buttons for show. Seriously, the little devil goes over my head without opening it, so I had one of my debates with the voices in my head. The 1st voice said, be mature, make lovely button holes for the skill factor. By the by- it was windy at the museum!?
I ignored all three, I think and just sewed the darn thing closed. If the buttonholes aren’t for function, why bother?
Ok, so what is all this leading to? JUNGLE JANUARY 2- Return of the Grrrrrrrrr!
Remember last year? No? Well where the hell were you? Don’t miss it! Flickr group here! Go reminisce and plot.
****Also, little Anne needs some help. The Blog Button Gods are not happy with me. Any tech help on making the above into our shiny new buttons would be appreciated!
