Today I cut out the lining pieces for my first version of Jalie 2562 and I think it’s going to fit pretty well. I’m going to try to add in a small dart at the bustline because the front armscye and back don’t quite meet up after adding in the FBA. I’ve got some puddling in the back, but I can’t decide how to go about fixing it, since it’s an alteration I’ve never done before. Darts? Carving out the waistline on the back pieces? Well, I’m sure I’ll be able to figure it out with some input or research. 🙂
I’m hoping to have both of these (and possibly an extra) done by this weekend, so that I can have at least two garments done for the SWAP. I’m starting to think that I’m not going to be able to finish the SWAP, given all the excitement going on here, but I’m going to give it my best shot.
Speaking of excitement, most of our stuff is ordered for our bathroom remodel. There’s been a couple changes in the plan to make our budget happier, but that’s OK. 🙂 I’ve gotten cold feet about it and worry that I’m making poor choices, but by the time the stuff gets here I should be over it and ready to rock. Do you ever do that? Start to have serious doubts about yourself when you get ready to take on a big project?
Until next time, may your days be filled with good fortune and humor! 🙂
