I wish I were passing the time doing something fun, but all I have been passing the last few days is kidney stones. Ouch. First time for everything. It’s like a meteor shower. I wish I could just pass a boulder and be done with it. The painkillers are lovely though.
So my fashion show and review of Biu Biu will have to wait until I feel better.
In the meantime, I am working on Burda 7798 view B.
- Right fabric, wrong pattern.
I have never made anything the way I am making this: piecemeal. I am cutting out the pieces as I sew them. Crazy, I know. The fabric is slippery, I have little bursts of energy, I’m winging it on the fit, and I’d rather have one accurately cut and sewn section at a time. I have finished one sleeve, sewn the darts on front and back, and basted the front to the back. I have not added the skirt/lower portion of the shirt yet. So far, so good.
Instead of doing a Full Bust Adjustment, I cut the size 16 front and sewed the darts about 1/4 deeper. This pulled the neck area to about the right spot. I should have added a little length to the bodice, so I hope the empire seam does not ride on my breasts. I will cut the skirt next and see for sure!
