I thought I would work up a muslin for a white sleeveless button down shirt. Thinking that a princess seam shirt would be the best, I graded and fit the McCall 5145 to work with ALL my curves.

I'm not sure if it's the lovely yellow and green cotton fabric or if I was just hangry..... Dear hubby said the shirt was fine and asked if I was planning to wear it to Church Wednesday night. My reply was, "I'm going to wear it straight to the dumpster!" Now those are hangry words!
I have decided to set the McCall 5145 pattern aside and work on something else. I have purged my "fit to me" patterns that I moved to my new closet. I've sorted, tagged, and rehung all the patterns. They are organized my type (jackets, skirts, tops & dresses) and I hope to make dividers for them too.
I am also organizing sewing machine needles. I didn't have a good system for storing them. I just kept them in a zip top bag. (Not a real smart idea!) I have purchased a plastic divider box (like a tackle box) and I will label the compartments for the different sizes and type of needles. Now it will be so much easier to find the right needle for the project I'm working on.
I'm hoping to get back to fall sewing here, but it's soooo hot, I just want to wear sleeveless dresses and float in the pool.
Until next time...................
