Well, since my mom is coming with me — ‘date’ might be a strong word. But, I’ve been trying to decide what to wear to meet Trudy and Jeremy from Hot Patterns in two weeks.
I’ve made two of their patterns three times, but sadly — only the Kimono dress remains. The blue Cosmopolitan got foundation on it that never came out. The two-tone Cosmopolitan was not a fabric match made in heaven and stretched out. The Kimono dress is just too heavy I think for Tampa.
I have two pants patterns from them. But, I don’t know that I have time to muslin and sew before I leave. Besides, pants are the fastest way to show that I photograph thinner than I actually am. Did I tell you that according to the chart in my doctor’s office, I’m overweight? Seriously. By 15 pounds according to it.
I of course have my dress patterns from them but think they are too dressy for a casual lunch. I would like to say that I kind of miss the names of the old HP sizes. Slinky Girl (6-14), Curvy Girl (18-26) and Glamour Girl (12-20). Fun, right?
