what’s a girl to do when she’s wired and it’s 1030pm on a Friday night?
Party, you say?
now, doesn’t that just scream unruly late nights, up to no good?
Due to an unfortunate stimulant-containing medication taking decision (note to self: there’s a reason it says don’t take after 5pm on the Rx slip), I was up all night last night, doing laundry and cutting out a new shirt.
I’m all about wendy lately. Her patterns are just awesome. They are adjustable, they are easy to follow and most importantly they fit. Can you even imagine?You can hear me gush all about my first built by wendy (Simplicity 3835) here.
This new shirt (Simplicity 3692) may be for my sister in law and it may be for me. (One of the nice things of having the same measurements as someone else!) I’ll only have to decide at the last minute, when I hem it, since she is about 5 inches shorter than me! Although, I don’t think I’ll follow the pattern exactly for either of us, as I don’t think that you can get away with that elastic at the waist if you aren’t super slim and wee teeny. As in, if you are over the age of 9 or aren’t a Twiggy-esque supermodel.
It’s really hard to make things for someone else, especially when it comes to clothing. I really like these 2 patterns and i can see her wearing either cut. I think that the vintage fabric suits her as well, but you never really know when you look at something, whether the other person is actually going to wear it. I would never want to make her something and then have her dislike it and then feel obligated to wear it.
Good thing I don’t have to decide until the last minute!
