What I wear, when I wear it, and how it works on my bike
We had house guests so we did a lot of eating out and now I feel like I never want to eat again. It was chilly and I spent a lot of time in my brand new Ureshii Leia hoodie (which I had made in the rosewood color; it’s less Leia-like but also stands up to untidy better). I had thumbloops added because I love them so much.
I had finished a muslin for the Simplicity 7673 last weekend and knew I needed to raise the waist (as always), add ease to the hip and probably do a full bust adjustment. The first two are easy; the third is still new to me. I found time to trace the pattern and make the adjustments, but not to cut the new muslin and try it on.
If I make it in a stretch knit, I can probably get away without making the hip/bust adjustments, and I may do this because I’m very excited about this pattern. It’s really cute. I’d like to make it in a soft corduroy and relive being in kindergarten!
The muslin took about a day–it’s quick and easy. Plus, the raglan sleeves are more forgiving than a set-in sleeve. The envelope recommends silks, pique, linen, crepe, double-knits and wool. I think I’ll use the rust-colored crepe I have in the stash before looking for a wool, cord or something with an interesting print. I don’t want to get too literal, but it will really be nice to have something finished and wearable soon!
