Follow-up to the bra fitting post ...
crdott & fabricfan asked where I got the new bras. Yes, fabricfan it was at Change. I didn't realize how few stores there are (only 3 in Quebec, I think). They were fabulous and I went back with a friend the next weekend for a couple more, since I needed at least one light colored one (but, of course, bought 2 LOL). My friend also got fitted and was very happy with her new purchase as well.
And, just for the record, I certainly didn't feel bad about the new sizing - my top half looks GOOD !
Now, what have I been doing ?
Just before the Olympics started, I found a group on Ravelry that was going to cast on a project during the opening ceremonies, with the goal of casting off by the end of the closing ceremonies. Well, there was no way I'd get a whole project done in 16 days so I decided I'd try to get my socks completed by then. At that point, I think I still had the gusset, heel and cuff to do. The bind off was done on the bus home Monday, 1 day late, but I count that as a success.
Next up... These are on my radar but are definitely NOT an easy bus ride project - so, I've cast on the next pattern in the SFTTU book - Diagonal Lace in the orange Opal I bought in New Brunswick a few weeks ago.
A bit of sewing has been done.
I'm working on my pants again. The inseam, outseam and crotch seams are all done. The waistband is next. 04-2009-119
My 4th version of M3341 (Basic A-Line Skirt) - Started way back in November - finished last Sunday. Need I repeat how slow I am LOL ? It was a straight 14 with a 3/4in. swayback adjustment. Invisible zip, rather than a centered application. I also added a lining.
Here's the back:
These were the first 3 I made from this pattern.
I'd like to put some more time into the pants this weekend...we'll see...
