Sewing is my outlet. It is how I deal with the stress. I'm sewing almost every day now. That is a good thing but I'm not sure how much it is helping me cope. I'm trying.
My newest project is a dress based off of the folkwear intimacies pattern #219.
I had a simple, comfortable sundress in mind. I picked out some fabric from my LARGE stash and went to work. Very carefully, I measured my chest, waist and hips then chose the size and cutting lines. I carefully measured grain line and lined up the pattern perfectly.
The first fitting of the partially made dress didn't so so good. It fits like a flower sack. VERY disappointed. I think my mistake is with the tape measure. My measurements weren't as accurate as I thought they were.
Oh well. I'll finish the dress tomorrow and have a very pretty nightgown. Next time I use this pattern, I'll get Dragon to help with the measurements and make a smaller size.
Ooops. With everything going on, I forgot to post a photo of the outfit I made this past winter. I'll ave to do that soon.
Ps After worrying about Emi overdoing it, I over did it today. Blag. I know better than that. It only makes me miserable. Oh well. I'll take it easy tomorrow. My body will make sure of it.
