THE BAD NEWS: ... well, after completely flubbing up my last Over the Top challenge garment (I'm convinced the fault layed in my fabric choice (too drapey) and not with the pattern. It's been a while since I've had a bona fide wadder, so it took me a little while to come to terms with this one. Wadders can be dangerous for me in that they tend to attack me emotionally. Wadder - I hate that word as much as I hate the meaning. Got to try to come up with a suitable alternative. I got a grip on Sunday afternoon by placing it in "Exterior file 13" - out at the curb. Sometimes I put these types of things in the "Interior file 13", but end up digging them back out to sulk over. I kinda wanted to force somebody else to take this one like Elaine May. the Selfish Seamstress suggested in her recent Vogue Magazine article.
THE GOOD NEWS: The sulking has ended now and I officially started the Bottom's Up Challenge yesterday by sifting through patterns trying to make a decision as where to start. After narrowing my selection down to two patterns I decided on Simplicity 4135, an oldie and I hope goody. I'll start on the muslin tonight.
