Wow, sorry for the radio silence this week. I started a class for work in which passing means I get to stay in my internship program so most nights this week have been occupied by furious reading and studying. The first test is tomorrow (wish me luck!) so this is just a quick post for today.
Well unfortunately, my suit is on hold for now as I lack the necessary dough to procure hair canvas for tailoring. That, and I’m having some muslin fitting woes which I hope to post about this week and get your much needed help on! I’m finding out that my shoulders are usually 1/2″ shorter than most patterns and have also only recently realized that I have a narrow back, erect posture and possibly a sway back. Woe is me!
But instead of weeping over things I cannot change, I’m going to go try and figure them out while you look at this week’s pretty pattern.
I realized in conversation with my husband yesterday that it’s been a few weeks since we last saw honest to goodness sunlight. In homage to that, I’m posting this little playsuit which I hope to whip up when the weather turns. I love the little details like the pleating on the shorts that is echoed in the top. This will be so nice to run around town doing errands in!
This pattern serves as a reminder to why I’ve also been exercising in earnest. This year I fully intend to wear shorts and shorter skirts! This hasn’t been done by me for a decade at least.
Back to studying for me and until next time,
