Shapes Change

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?)
