I love to sew

I've been sewing!

First I haven't made any progress on my muslin for Vogue 1257 because when I got ready to sew, I couldn't find the envelope or the instructions! WTH! I have searched high and low to no avail. Now I'm just waiting for JoAnns to have them on sale so I can purchase and another copy.



In the meantime, I made another bra. Yippee! Maybe not. It was all for naught. As I was sewing it my husband declared that my boobs were not as big as the bra looked. I thought it look big but figured by the time I sewed all the seams it would fit as perfectly as the last one I made. After all, it was the same pattern. Wrong. I used different fabric and it made a huge difference! There's no need for me to sew the straps because the bra fits me just like it does on the mannequin. I'm too old to use socks or tissue so I'll remove the underwires and chalk it up to experience! I'll not be deterred. I may even work on another one later today.

Today I was called in for a second interview for a position at a property managment company. They put a lot of emphasis on being professionally dressed. I thought the blond afro would be too much so this is what I wore.




The head guy kept commenting on how much education I had, like it was a bad thing! I don't think a Bachelor's degree is so much education. Could it mean that I'm over qualified?

BTW can you believe I'm 10 weeks post op on the total knee replacement and I'm already in heels. Yep. I'm not wearing them very long but I can walk in them without limping. The only difference is my stride it not as long as it used to be. Who cares. Diva's shouldn't be hurried!

  4. I hate the concept of overqualified. Why are we being penalized for getting an education?

  5. I think you look great. I too hate when they start using overqualified. It just means they want you but don't want to pay for you. Don't let them short change you.
    Good luck.

  14. The bra is pretty. And you dressed professionally beautiful for your interview. I love the entire ensemble. Sometimes interviewers aren't the best interviewers and are at a lose for words. Especially when the interviewee is prepared and sharp. Wink, wink.
