Have you ever read the book The Missing Piece Meets the Big O by Shel Silverstein? I feel like the Big O these days, as he says to the missing piece, “shapes change”. My shape has certainly changed 2 births later and lets just say a “few” years since I’ve really sewn myself a fitted garment.
Anyway, it’s not a pity party, but rather a puzzle that I can’t quite piece together. Anybody a good garment fitter? I made my second toile, but can’t figure out how to make this last fitting work and translate it to a new pattern for my dress bodice. Needless to say, I’m not experienced, so I guess I might be making 3 or 4 muslins before I get this right. In the meantime, I have the needies – for this book. It’s new, from Collette Patterns called The Collette Sewing Handbook and it looks informative and beautiful all wrapped into one. Did I mention there is a time limit on this project…? Aaaaaack – counting down a few more weeks, getting my butt in gear, here we go! (Maybe I need a backup plan?)
