Squeaking in one last post for 2009.
Sneak peeks at what I did today:
fixed droopy cowl neck from my "fail" post by folding over the collar (ok, this is really from yesterday but I took the pic tonight). Now it's more like a neat boat neck.

folded over floppy cowl neck equals happy camper

Made wearable muslin yoga pants--has a nifty yoke-waistband thing. By "wearable" I mean, worn in the comfort of my own home. I never think heathered light gray is all that flattering but I shockingly made a muslin this time using crummy fabric I didn't care about before cutting into my precious $10 a yard double knit. I think it will look much better in chocolate brown.

I actually made a sway back adjustment. I took a picture of my rear but really, have no guts to post it. Also, this pattern shockingly thinks that the pants will hold themselves up against gravity, so I added elastic to the waistband. I'll blog the pattern number later.

This is a disaster shirt from 2008 that I never finished. I might have a before photo of it lurking around somewhere. Probably 8 months ago I ripped out the bad collar and have been thinking about what to do with it from time to time. Tonight I actually sewed up the sides and hemmed the armholes and edge of the shirt. This is where it's heading: ruffle-land.
ruffles:  I'm workin' on it

It's almost 2010 here. At 8pm I didn't think I'd stay awake past 9 and somehow I've inadvertently stayed up. Hmmmm.

Happy New Year! And happy blue moon!
