I am working, working, working on several projects. New Look 6027 tunic tops was admired by M, so I have finished the first try at all the alterations, including widening the shoulder seam since it looks very narrow. What is the point of designing clothing that is difficult to wear? Women have shoulder straps that need to be covered, so why design a blouse with so narrow a shoulder line? Oh well. Then I finished the design changes on A’s shirt for work, then I worked on the design for a peasant top for a 4-year-old girl. I had to hunt around for a fabric suitable for that ‘pink and purple’ stage most little girls go through, but I found a forgotten, very pretty lavender and pastel striped cotton that will do nicely for the first version. I am also playing with the Buzzbox, which transfers embroidery designs into the format your machine can use, and it seems to be great.
But right now I have to go iron a week’s worth of work shirts for the husband while listening to a murder mystery.
