Sequins and Sleeves
Oh, how I wish I had Rhonda Buss looking over my shoulder. She's the expert on sleeves. I have just about perfected the fit of a new princess seamed bodice and am choosing to add sleeves, which I had to hack...er, draft. I finally got something to fit, but they are elbow length and how should I put it? Ugly. As is this material, which is bright spring green with sequins. I not only purchased this material but have matching stretch bottomweight for pants (fortunately no sequins). Which I will finish, since I am bound and determined to wear me-made stuff to my sewing club. Even if it's in the middle of September I will look like the breath of Spring, or a frog. But it will be me-made. And I have taken out every one of the sequins in the multiple seam allowances, except, of course, for the one that will make me miserable throughout the entire meeting. Smile!
