Sewing Camp is O-vah!
Well, the beginning of the weekend feels a little sad, because it's the end of sewing camp with Sandra and the ladies, but I FINISHED my shirt! reviewers at PR were that it was too short and that the tie was too high under the bust. I showed Sandra the pattern and my fabric, and asked her for her advice. She immediately said, "Let's make it 4 inches longer and flare it out," and she had me cut it so the tie is lower under the bust. Here are the awesome pattern alterations she did, but you'll have to wait for the final product since I had to pick the kids up from school. (Props to Mimi for picking them up yesterday!) version rocked as an original). And also, can I say how surreal it was that I was sewing and talking yesterday and noticed that it was 3:15 PM, then the next time I looked up it was 6:30 PM?! That's just how fun this is - the sewing machine seems to create a time warp. (Robbie, I'm so sorry I didn't get a picture of your finished muslin! Sue and the ladies said they'd post our final pictures if we email them - they took some pics before I left too.)
