ASG stands, of course, for American Sewing Guild. I belong to the Marietta chapter and went to a meeting tonight. I had to explain why it has been several months: I don't like to drive in the dark (winter). I neglected to add "and I'm lazy". But as usual, once I went I enjoyed it. One of the things we do is "show and tell". I wore my green V8151 tee with the embellished palm tree on it, and everyone said they liked it...it has a bust dart. The more I look at other tee patterns, the less I like them. I think even small busted women probably can use a bust dart for a better fit. Anyway, while there I signed up for a blouse sloper pattern class and just ordered a classic blouse pattern from Peggy Sagers. Whew! If I can learn to make that one, button holes, lapels and all, I will consider myself very accomplished. Now I have a use for that silk I bought at A Fabric Place while in Baltimore. And this fall we're having a fabric swap, so I can pawn off that terrible stuff from Fabric Fairy. Although I did recommend the site to a couple of women at the meeting who were looking for children's fabrics.
