Hi, friends! I hope you’re all well! I’ve been having so much fun reading your comments on the Colette giveaway post (and I can’t wait to draw a winner!)!
Guys. The Iris shorts have been soooo fun to put together! I’ve been working on a muslin in every spare moment after work, and they were really looking cute! I attached the waistband last night and… they’re way too tight to close around my waist!! Waaaayyyy too tight. I started muttering about the pattern drafting and stomping around the house until, just for fun, I decided to measure my waist AND… turns out I’ve added about 1 1/2″ inches to my waistline since I last measured myself. NOOOOOOOOOO! I guess it’s a relief that the error is on my end and not the pattern’s, but… I guess I will have to quit eating so many bagels! So sad (I’d be lying if I said I didn’t shed a tear or two last night…).
So yeah. I’ll be cutting out a new muslin in a larger size (just to make sure it fits!). And word to the wise, gals– bust out that tape measure every time you start a new project!
What are you guys working on? Any fun weekend plans? I’ll be frantically writing tonight for my last class tomorrow, then revising like crazy for my showcase Sunday evening, so I won’t have too much time to work on the shorts. But I should have lots more free time after this weekend!
