Hi, friends! I’m not dead! I bet you were wondering… It’s just that this week and next we’re filming the finale episode of the TV show that I work on and things have been coo-coo-crazy (18-hour work days– yikes!)! I’m slowly but surely working on some things, though. Ginger skirt #2 is waiting to be hemmed, and I’m struggling through alterations to the Sorbetto top. Muslin #1 revealed that the bust darts hit too high and too far in, and that the tank is way too short. I added two inches of length to the pattern, and drafted new bust darts in an attempt to lower them without significantly changing the pattern. Muslin #2 is mysteriously lacking in ease (can this be explained by monkeying with the bust darts?), so I’m trying to figure out what went wrong. I really don’t want to make a third muslin for what should be a pretty straightforward top! But, I don’t want to cut into my fabric and ruin it when I could have simply made a third muslin. Ah, the trials and misfortunes we all must bear!
What are you guys working on??
