I would love to have this attitude, but I am strung a bit tighter than The Dude. There is a lot to love about this movie (The Big Lebowski) and this approach to life's challenges. Me, I sew.
I absolutely LOVE this blouse by Love Notions. It was a bit fiddly to manage in polyester but I have a colorful winter blouse which will go with jeans or slacks. oops, where is my head? I highly recommend the Rhapsody pattern by Love Notions. My review can be found on PR.
I also completed the Walter pattern by Silhouette. This is a take on a Walter Finley blouse sold in department stores for $$$. It is a more upscale style of shirt than I usually wear and I think it will be great for Thanksgiving at the clubhouse-I'll wear it with jeans and boots.
After shirtmaking (Walter's blouse) and teeny tubes of polyester (Rhapsody blouse), I needed something easy. A tee, of course.
This is a take on the Marcy Tilton pattern V9057. Here I threw it on over some voluminous knit pants for a PR review...it is a bit more flattering than this. I made changes in the drape by adding an inch as if for a full tummy.
Another tee is in my closet-I tried the Urban tee by Sewing Workshop. I really like the design and while my use of rib knit isn't perfect, I am happy enough to wear this tee for errands or cool mornings. Reviewed on PR.
In the middle of this sewing frenzy, I started working on some collage papers in anticipation of a bigger project. I'll update you as it develops. Here are some snapshots of WIP:
See you later, and remember, The Dude abides.
