Fits and Starts
I don’t have an image to accompany this post, sorry. If I did it would be a pile of wadded up muslin cast-off in a fit of utter frustration. I have been trying for..oh..EVER to adapt this pattern to my sloper and I just cannot get it to work. I have been trying not to give up, I have been sticking with it and trying to muddle through it. No more…I am SO done. I did complete the muslin and I tried it on, but it looked like I was wearing a potato sack.
“Are you making a robe?”
So I tried it again, changing tactics, accompanied by a phone call to mom and still…ugh…I feel defeated. Around this time I came across this post on All Buttoned Up and it made me feel so much better. I totally got seduced by the model on the package and it made me realize that this dress shape is not appropriate for short-waisted short women. I need tailoring. I need darts. So, back to the drawing board. I am going to need a lot more muslin.
