I was still struggling with my neckline problem for a tee shirt. After a couple of unsatisfactory tries, I finally had a "duh!" moment and posted my problem on Artisan's Square. The very same day, I think I have the answer: a patten from the independent pattern company Pamela's Patterns. Here's their description: " #107 New Necklines and Sleeves for The Perfect T-Shirt
On another note, my wonderful fabric came in. I'm very happy with it but I find I need to pay attention to the width of the fabric I'm ordering (another duh! moment). The black lace is even prettier than I thought it would be, but very narrow. I'm hoping 2 yards is even enough to make a long sleeved blouse. Meanwhile, the georgette is so hugely wide that 2 yards is at least one yard too much to make a blouse and the 2 yards will make a respectable dress. I worry that the fabric is so heavily embellished--and it's heavy that it may be difficult to dance in---tear up my partner's hands as I twirl around. And I twirl around a lot!
