Apparently, Cidell is playing the role of the manic blogger today…
I didn’t bother with the arms because I did a pin fit and they worked. I’m also skipping doing the skirt muslin even though it’s cut because the waist fits me here too. I have to say that I always think I could use another inch in the waist, but the marked waistline is hitting me at my waistline.
As a fairly lazy sewist, I’m open to second opinions. Does this fit?
I like that my poor Spanish is considered “charming” to 23 year old sailors, but merely warranted me a C in college.
I didn’t take my camera, so no good photos. The ‘tall ship’ Libertad is docked in Baltimore and I had to rep my boss for the event. The Argentine ambassador, Jose Bordon, thew a little soiree on board tonight.
To highlight the food: little baby quiche, figs wrapped in prosciutto, beef empanadas, some sort of traditional stir fry pork in a cream sauce, mini turkey sandwiches on fresh baked bread, herbed cheeses topped with mushrooms, meats and other veggies.
I will say my 3 inch stacked heels and two glasses of red Argentine wine were not the best for getting on and off the ship, but luckily, there were plenty of sailors to help.
So much freaking fun. Makes up for the 50 hour work weeks.
Next post we will return to sewing.
