Sometimes, I just want to delve into my huge fabric stash and make something. I probably have more fabric than I will ever be able to sew. I should just give a load of it to the thrift store. But, I am constantly bored and frustrated with the lack of personality and "fit"of storebought clothing. Occasionally, I go off on a tangent thinking that I will just make my own clothes, overlooking the hours involved in sewing and the excessive swearing when the fit is not right. This is this weekends effort. I find the arms bind a bit but I will probably wear it a few times. Fortunately, the fabric was probably picked up for a couple of bucks.

Oh I do like this style! It is lovely Paula. 'Course you had me giggling with talk of the excessive swearing. I admit that I go that route myself when frustrated. Sigh...

Cessation of swearing is always on my new year's resolution list, admittedly somewhere near the bottom below "get in shape/lose a few pounds/go to europe/sell more paintings/ but there....and I'm still working on it but weakly.

If one is raised where swearing is not heard or part of one's vocabulary it helps. It would just take way too much effort, not to say one doesn't get hopping mad from time to time.
About the garment: it is lovely but if you need a name for a garment that is created and does not fit it is called a "wadder" as it ends up wadded up in a corner.
