I sewed the t shirt as is. It fits absolutely perfectly! I was shocked. I still have to put the hems and the neck band on. I pulled out my serger/coverstitch machine, but haven't got it working quite right yet. I'll keep at it because I really want to coverstitch this shirt. It is a knit, hot pink. I have a black knit skirt I will wear it with. I'm going to get it done this week, by hook or by crook.
I've washed some challis and will cut out a dress tomorrow evening. I'm going to use the straight 26. Hopefully it will fit well. The last time I made it I was around this weight, so it should fit reasonably well. Then I'll have two new outfits. I've got to go find some rayon to make the same dress and a matching jacket with a white inset and white lapels on the jacket. It will be a very pretty outfit.
I've been looking for some new shoes. I havent found anything I like yet. Everything has such high heels and I'm not able to wear those anymore. I think I'm going to look at naturalizer and see if they have anything dressy and comfortable.
