Anyhoooooo, I just took my trusty tunic pattern and converted it to this tunic:
It was easy- I rotated the dart from the side to the center front. You can see it in the piece below- I cut along the legs of the dart and cut new legs where the gathering will go. Pull the pieces to join the former dart legs and voila. So, if it works, you will be the first to know!
So today I am really taking it easy because I am bereft at the loss of the Real Estate Fantasy I had going up until yesterday. DD is coming up to have dinner with the hubster and me- we are celebrating my birthday. You would not believe the amazing smells coming from the kitchen. I got to pick the menu and I chose the seafood etouffe he made for me the first time he cooked for me. He wooed me with food (and obviously, it worked!)
Boo hoo, sniffle... I am already plotting my next goal. I am seriously motivated to semi-retire within 10 years but I still want to work. I would love it if my next job could be sewing related. Teaching maybe? How about sewing machine repair? Check this out!
LOL.... glamourous, isn't it!!
