I had gradiose dreams of sewing up a skirt this weekend. But, the US Conference of Mayor’s took up a lot of my time. I did wear the skirt on Friday night and decided that it needs to be taken in some.
Saturday night there was an event at Ft. McHenry, birthplace of the Star Spangled Banner. Liz and I were getting for the fireworks. Those sparklers smelled *acrid*. And, burned out in like 45 seconds. You can see the blue volunteer shirt in tucked into my bag. I just wore it over my dress until I was off the clock. hee hee.
In sewing news, my Sewy bra pattern is here! I have to give a big thanks to a PR member. I wasn’t able to make the order from Germany because of the website. GlobalMom happened to be in Germany at the time I posted on the PR Board. She ordered the pattern for me and shipped it from the States when she got home. Awesome, right?!
This is the Rebecca pattern. The directions are all in German, but the photos are super clear. I’m really excited because it’s just like my favorite $60 bra and is my size exactly. No mixing and matching. No sizing up. Just straight up my size.
This is definitely my next project.
