So here's Butterick 4818 in progress. Do you see my stupid mistake?
I was so intent on not landing big blossoms on the bazooms that I completely missed that I was cutting twins and now I have two fronts that are almost carbon copies of each other and not in a good way. Arggh. I was 2 inches short with leftover fabric for cutting one new front or else I would have. I'll still finish it and wear it, but I won't love it like I do its predecessor. Why did it have to be the big bright red flowers smack in the middle?? Grrr.
And because that's all I have, here's another crappy mirror pic of what I'm wearing today. The capris which look like the ones I usually wear are actually the ones I couldn't fit into 3 months ago and now they're even loose.The top is a Simplicity something-I-forget-at-the-moment that I made a few summers and also couldn't wear until now. I love this top because it's perfect for hot temps, so I'm very happy to have it back in rotation.
Finally, that's Chili doing his wiggle dance on the floor. Translation: Look at me, talk to me, pet me NOW! He's always quite the attention hog … I mean dog.
