Thursday I made a skirt with some great navy blue polka dot fabric (that I found at the thrift store) following a tutorial on a fabulous new website I found called “Gerties New Blog for Better Sewing” (if you are into retro sewing, this is the place). After making the skirt, I decided I also wanted a blouse out of the same stuff. I found an etsy shop (Embonpoint Vinage) that sells PDF’s of out of print patterns. It’s a whole drafting system, so you get instructions and a template, and you have to draft out the pattern yourself. I’ve been wanting to learn a little more about drafting my own patterns, so I figured I’d give it a go.
Bigsby, on the other hand, figured it was a bad idea. We had a stand off for a while, as I didn’t want to shoo him away and have him tear the tissue pattern paper.
I should have the blouse done on Monday, in which case I will try to make a point of sharing…something that I seem to have forgotten to do on this blog lately. Apparently I don’t have much to share as of late.
PS: I do often post to instagram. My user name is “courteneyrodda” Today is Caturday, thus, the above image of Bigsby. Although…let’s be honest…every day is caturday with me.
