(Here's the culprit that's been frustrating me---The nearly finished peplum top in black twill with a cute snake skin patterned belt I hope to wear with it. It's pretty much done I just need to resolve a back fitting issue.)
It's so agonizing to be so close to finishing a project but yet still feel a bit away. I feel like I've been working on NewLook 6130 forever!!! First there was thedisappearing denim design fabric snafu I had that made me put the project on hold until I could find another fabric of choice. Then I rushed to get it done this weekend and ran into a fitting issue I didn't anticipate. I rarely have to do a narrow back adjustment but it looks like this pattern may require it. I'm still not sure if it's an issue with the fabric or pattern just yet. Even worse is I made a muslin but didn't add the zipper. I would've been able to spot the fitting issue had I added the zipper. Argh!!! I don't feel like trying to figure it out. This was supposed to be my quick and easy project!!!! I feel like a toddler right now having a tantrum. Sigh. Argh! Pout. Sigh....and pout again.
Well I suppose these types of frustrations are quite common to any seamstress. Which you and I both know they very well are. I'm cool now since I vented my frustrations. Thanks for listening (smile). I'm determined to see this project through to the end. So I'm putting on my big girl britches and going back to it. I like a challenge and nothing matures you more as a seamstress than taking a problem head on. I'll figure out the problem, resolve it and then move on.
I'll have this top ready before the week's end. I've got one more piece to sew and it's on to Fall sewing. It hasn't even gotten a bit cold here yet. I don't expect it to for a while but I still want to start my wardrobe so I'll be ready when it does. I'll unveil my Fall/Winter sewing plans in my next post.
