I don't like the CC aka blouse from Hell any better today. One reason I hate it is because it looks like a scrub top and scrub tops are so not my style. I tried to do some sewing today and had more disaster. I made mistakes I didn't even make when I first started sewing and that was 40 years ago. Just the burden of having cancer is getting to me. Physically I just feel like I coming down with a cold but mentally I can't concentrate or think of much else. I just want it to be over...not my life...my cancer. I got way too much sewing that I want to do than to be thinking about "buying the farm." After all, I still don't have a thing to wear!
Taking a cue from Lisa H I decided to start a simple project that wouldn't work my last nerve...Vogue 1058. Right from the start it wasn't looking real good. At first I didn't think I had enough fabric but after a frantic search of my stash I found more. Of course I didn't realize that the fabric was only 45" wide so had to do a bit of creative pattern placement to get the top cut out. Threaded up the machine with the best matching thread and off I went. Why in the heck did I stitch the darts on the wrong side of the fabric, take them out and then stitch again on the wrong side of the fabric! I cut the wrong size and wound up having to take 2" off of the side seams. Stretched the armholes a little or they were just too big in the first place and after topstitching the neck, which I'm none to happy with the workmanship, I realize that I had better matching thread than I was using! On the bright side I think this will be my TNT tank top pattern.
