There are so many things that come to mind when I prep to write a blog post….How do I title this?.., what pictures should I use?.. I want to tell you about this raglan blouse and all the flowers and how divine the fabric is to touch!!! I want to tell you hello and all that jazz that goes along with it, and show you a gazillion pictures, cause that is actually how many I took before writing this post. Sometimes, I want to say: “What’s up y’all, what’s crackin!” But, I change my wording because, I think..~~~, will they receive my relaxed, sometimes crass tone as easily as my Periscope folks do when I start a broadcast, or maybe “will my impatient Youtube subscribers receive my laid back somewhat wordy conversational style when they read my blog? So many questions arise… “What interest you? Is it fashion only? Do you want to see cute pics? Hear stories? See construction details? See my studio? Have updates of my sew life? Or, learn about the patterns I use or the lack thereof?….there are so many directions I can take a blog post. So I start with this…..
“Hey y’all, I made a new blouse!!! Yeepee!! Meet Petals….
I become bored so easily with just showing pics of my makes and discussing what seam I used or the pattern I used. I want to tell you a story about the blouse and how long it sat in the corner of my studio balled up in a wad waiting for me to love on it and cuddle it in my arms. How it sat hoping I would smooth the wrinkles from its soft forgiving petals and then wrap it’s caresses around my shoulders to allow it to comfort my body the same way a warm spring might feel on a cool spring morning. I present to “Petals” the name of my new blouse.
This poor blouse has been sitting in the corner of my studio for months. I almost forgot about it until my cousin came to visit and noticed “the pretty fabric in the corner.” I showed it to her and realized it was complete and ready to just take pictures. So I put it on my dressform and that is were it sat for a long time…you all probably have seen it in the background of some of my videos or periscope broadcast. That is all. So here she is in all her glory with the pants from stitch fix that I made the alteration to on my channel.
Next up is a dress I made for my daughter, Jennifer to test the sizing of bootstrap for plus size curvy ladies. Here is a sneak peak until I can finish writing that post and get pictures of her wearing the finished look for you all to see…..
