I can’t believe it! I can’t be the only one? How could this happen?
A serious disease? A death? A horrible tragedy? Well, maybe the last one.
The top that I’ve been working on and swore I wouldn’t show you until it was perfect? Yeah it’s not the top, it’s me. Apparently this style isn’t made for hobbits. Drat!
I shortened the darn thing and the length is just right, unfortunately the hips underneath are not.
My beautifully made top, with the lining hand-stitched in and so much care taken to make it perfect after I waited for YEARS to make it, can’t be worn by this body. Gosh dang-it all to heck!
I will say however, that it does *fit* great. I can move in it and it doesn’t bunch, cinch or pinch so if I don’t mind looking like a goofball, I’d be very comfortable.
That’s a start!
It also means I can work with it and hopefully find out how to make future ones work, especially since I have another one cut out and waiting to be put together on my sewing table. Oy!
I’m glad I’ve got a yummy bottle of wine and my finest “crystal” to sooth my broken heart this evening.
I’ll be blocking a sweater and watching some Alfred Hitchcock if you need me….
