Suffering For My Art ….. Final Countdown

Now I did actually crack on and do my sewing and jolly happy I am too with the performance of my overlocker, made the jersey an absolute breeze.

This said I am going to change the neckline a tad, not happy with how it sits on me. I have rather broad shoulders and shall we say NOT a swan like neck, therefore if a neckline is too round it makes me look like I have no neck at all, not flattering. Other than that I am really happy with this make and am certain the top will get plenty of varied use.

Finding the sewjo to get this minor adjustment sorted will be the trick. Within hours of almost finishing I was hit with one of those super winter virus things which means yesterday was my first day up and dressed. Currently sporting the panda look that is the usual for me after illness ( why do people like to point out how poorly I look when actually I feel loads better)? Am still a bit wobblie on the old legs and pretty weak and feeble hence the lack of sewjo.

Anticipate this weekend may offer a window of feeling not so sorry for myself to get that last adjustment made šŸ™‚

Hope you are all well and warm brrrrr snow trying to sneak into South England šŸ˜‰ and may the sewjo force be with you. X

    Oh dear – ill and losing your sewing mojo! Love the pattern of the jersey fabric and I feel the same about those necklines. No neck and big boobs mean a V-neck is a must:)

    It’s looking good! Hope the aches and pains suffered from cutting out on the floor paid off. The fabric looks lovely, and hopefully you’ll feel well enough to wear it.
    Just reading the thread above…. are we having an online birthday bash for you this summer? Not sure how but sure we could think of something! x
