Going Off Script.

Posted by Blog 16 July, 2017 No Comments

If you have been following my blog since the beginning, you know that sometimes I struggle with following directions.  I have good intentions.  I just feel like I have better ideas.  I do have better ideas, the problem is, my sewing skills don’t always align with my ideas.

My idea this week was to make up a pattern for a tank top.  I have a tank that I love and I wanted to see if I could recreate it.  I traced my tank and cut out a pattern.  My kind of pattern, 3 pieces.  I like things in sets of 3.  It’s weird.

I cut out my fabric and pin it on Betty to make sure it will work. Betty is set up with my measurements.  Sans the bust.  Betty came with a pre-built in bust.  I was NOT made with a pre- built in bust.  I have become very familiar with “SBA”.  SBA=small bust adjustment.

I start to sew. I am using my little Bernina 350 because I am obsessed with how it top stitches.

Then I become distracted by this.

WTH is happening. WTH=what the heck (that is the censored version).  I am pretty sure whatever is happening is not normal.  I ignore it and pretend nothing is happening. NIH=nothing is happening (I made that one up, in case you googled it.)

I finish up my project. EVEN though NIH is in the background and is VERY annoying.

My tank went so well that my friend Steph wanted to borrow my pattern!

Isn’t she adorable?  She has no idea I would use this in my blog.  She is going to kill me.  She has only been sewing for 2 months!  I am so proud of her!
