Hope you're stuffed !


Current Mood : Fat & Happy


Happy Thanksgiving ! Hope your day was good to you, relaxing, and full of great food. As for us, we had a great main meal, and sat around all day, fat and happy.


You know me, though – that didn’t stand for long ! Too bad it took me so long to decide what to sew that I didn’t have much time to do it. Luckily, Ghoulia’s new jacket didn’t take that long. It’s the View E collarless shrug from Simplicity #1955, ‘small’ size. It’s pretty much designed for Bratz, so I wasn’t sure how it’d fit, but it’s not that bad. It’d probably fit a bit better over a dress or blouse without sleeves, but a bit of tuck in, and it looks pretty good. I like how it give her a suit look ! I had something very similar  a decade or two ago – mostly wore it for interviews and funerals. No glitter on mine, though. Longer skirt, too.


Anyway, if I remember correctly, I got this pattern last year about this time, and tried the jacket with the optional ruffled collar. It came out a bit too big then, so I stitched it up today with scraps from the rag box, figuring I’d figure out how much to take it in if necessary. Don’t think I’ll have to now ! So the next trial will probably have that ruffle, ‘cause I like it. I also wanna try it with gathered lace and other trims. Wish me luck !
