My Next Project
I've been waiting for the Sewaholic Pendrell Blouse sew along to begin - and the time is almost here!
Tasia, designer - and author of Sewaholic, the blog - is a fantastic example of how creative dreams can become a reality - a commercially viable one!
She is also a skilled tutorialist. Her Sewtionary is an excellent starting point for information many techniques.
You should consider joining the sew along - or ordering this lovely pattern and completing it on your own schedule. (It's a beginner/intermediate project.)
It's going to be interesting to see the fit in my preliminary muslin. I suspect an FBA will be in order, given that Tasia is designing, first and foremost, for a pear-shaped figure. (Alas, one never knows till the sewing begins.) I've had mixed success with FBAs - though I've never tried one on a princess-seamed top. It's the challenges that keep it interesting though, right?
And soon enough I'll have a Kristin-shaped dress form to drape and pin and check against!
