I spent an entire afternoon pondering over which pattern to use for my deft blue fabric and finally chose Butterick 6456 view D tunic being attracted to that lovely bell sleeve of course. Because I am more in tune with using knits, this being a woven I choose my size using Nancy Zieman's Fitting Finesse (old edition) page 9 because I didn't want to end up with a garment that was too large in the neck, shoulders and bust area.
- I feel like I'm finally getting back into my sewing
- My friend Rachelle (Smoking Needles) verbally(over the phone) - talked me through making the best thread chain ever (machine made ) for my button closure at the back neckline.
This is an excellent way to make belt loops as well - fussless. I don't make thread chains for closure that often, but this is a wonderful technique to add to my sewing knowledge...
