....and thanks to all the wonderful blogs I read daily, or almost daily, I decided to dip my toes into the water and give blogging a try....so this is my beginning.....
I spend way too much time on the internet anyway, so I might as well be productive. I'm hoping that by blogging I'll hold myself accountable for completing projects and not just talking about completing them.
I'm finally taking another fitting class and my first project for this class is a simple Butterick blouse pattern (4855). Yeah, I know you're probably gagging at my choice of pattern, but I like it. ;o) I wanted something simple and summery...no placket..no collar and stand...no set in sleeves. This fit the bill. I'm making View D, with the simple open collar and I'm using View A's shorter puffed sleeve. Hmmm..... mutton, dressed like a lamb...I hope not, but we'll see...! LOL!!!!
This is the fabric I'm planning to use. It's a wonderfully soft cotton lycra that I purchased at http://www.fabricmartfabrics.com/ last winter.
Please see my next post for the pattern and fabric pictures...sigh...don't ask. ;o) Anyone who knows me, and my computer skills (Holly, Carol & Theresa) understands the previous sentence and why my pictures are in a different post...sigh...it's a curse. ;o)
