Big thanks to ReadyThreadSew, Claire and Louise for your advice on my massive shoulders problem. Now I have another one – I googled “high round back sewing adjustments” and the article I hit was The Dowager’s Hump by Threads magazine. Dowager’s hump? Now there’s a way to make a girl feel frumpy and insecure. I’m checking the photos again…
…it’s not that bad, is it? Honestly? I mean, my head’s a bit tilted forward, but that can’t be a hump… man, now I need to sign up to Pilates or something for some posture reassurance. Thanks a lot Threads. Really.
Let’s move on. Button-holes!
First ever button-holes: a learning curve
In a not-quite-a-resolution sewing post, I said I’d face my fear of button-holes this year… secretly thinking, maybe June time. And then the Sew Weekly sticks in ‘buttons’ as the theme for the second week of January! I’d already signed up as a contributor for 2012, and though I won’t manage a project every single week, I really wanted to get started.
Not my brightest idea…as I wrote in my Sew Weekly post, the plan seemed loopier by the minute. But I beat those buttons into submission in the end:
One challenge down, now must go sort out my
dowager’s hump Truffle muslin for the next one. Have a good weekend everyone!
