I just spent two hours running errands.  I’m half tempted to write an insane, long rant about people’s inability to drive on the freeway in Nashville.  I will instead, try to remain smiling and forget the whole episode.

While I was out I got a bias tape maker in a wider size.  I will now work very hard to get everything else I need to do done before I spend the rest of the day making bias tape.  I don’t even need bias tape immediately for anything, I just suddenly want to make lots of it in patterns and bright colors.

This weekend I did a little refashioning.  Turning an oddly sized long-sleeved blouse into a much cuter, better fitted short-sleeved blouse.  I forgot to take a before picture, but this gives you the general idea of what I removed:

I also made a sewing set on my Flickr, which has a few more details on this and some past projects as well.

  1. Cute! It looks like you did a great job. I was just discussing my wish that women’s shirts had a shoulder/bust sizing system yesterday. Or maybe a length/bust system? It’s not fair that men get better tailored clothes.

    Also, your short sleeves are making me jealous for your Spring weather. I think I might throw a tantrum if we don’t break 60 before April. Jealous! 😀

  2. Oh, wow! It’s stunning! Well done, you!
