Sew Happy

Life continues to be happy and wonderful, esp when a sewing project comes together.

I made Sew Liberated School House Tunic on the recommendation of the really nice girl I was talking to at the fabric shop. I was buying fabric for another project and, chatting away, I got caught up in the moment and, do I need another pattern?, Oh well what the hell....?

My tunic/dress came together well, the sleeves were really easy to fit,  just as the sales person said they would be.

I traced the pattern, made the muslin and adjusted the sizing but not too much and I am happy with the result.

Whilst I made the dress length I am a little uncertain about it. This length really cannot be worn by "women of a certain age" without thick tights, leggings or over jeans.

And, YES I am happy, I have a wonderful life and I have been clearing out the clutter. Not so much "out with the old , in with the new" but streamlining, minimalizing  and making life simpler.

May days in  QLD  make me happy, clear blue skies, 26 deg temps in the days and a little cooler at night, why would you live anywhere else????

Dancing in the rain makes me happy.
