How ugly printed fabric saved me $
The best thing about patterns is being able to create sizes that fit your body. For example, I have a small chest, wide waist and a long torso. Not exactly a perfect size that fit within the pattern size chart. So I was able to mix and match to find a perfect "me" fit. [Note on picture: You should always fold your fabric wrong side out and then pin on your pattern pieces. That way you can easily draw any markers from the pattern onto your fabric. I only worked with it right side out to show the fabric pattern.]
These next few weeks will be getting a bit crazy, since our apartment will be known as "Hotel ThomandErin". I have one of my oldest friends coming to visit this weekend and then next week BOTH of Thom's brothers will be staying with us for a while. So for now, I had to break this post up. I'll be posting the next few steps when I can get a break from playing hostess. I hope everyone has a great Friday!
