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.
