|day by day from modcloth (for once I wrote down the name)|
Well, I got the neckline curving, but altering the lengths didn't go so well. Its pretty close, but its just not flattering (thus no pictures. the world did not need to see this) With a little more tinkering, I'm sure it will be fine, but since I only have today and tomorrow to work on it, and don't want to be up all night on Thursday, I am setting it aside for the moment. Most frustrating, but less so that ruining perfectly good fabric.
Adding to the insanity, I recklessly joined Scruffy Badger's New Look 6000 Fest. I mean, thats not going to require a ton of fitting, or new fabric or a heck of a lot of time or anything. I've decided not to take any responsibility for my actions, and lay all the blame at Winne's door. (Although, full disclosure, it my head, you are 'Scruffs') Anyhow, when I implode and smoking chunks ricochet all over the internet, you will know why. *
(Remember that winter coat -- yeah... ::BOOM::) Also, for anyone who was wondering about thinsulate - its not hard to work with -- unless you want to tweak the fit. It gets caught on EVERYTHING and bits fall off. It also picks up dust like nobody's business. I think its much better suited for unfitted things that it can just be popped into and enclosed - at this point there is a very real chance I am going to put it aside and switch to polar fleece, as I really do love messing with the fit -- so quilted vests, slippers, mittens, etc... may all be in my future.)
*I defy you to prove I cannot implode AND ricochet if I want to.
