500 Channels and Nothing On — Except New Look 6083
We had Direct TV at our house yesterday. That resulted in 3 hours of people futzing around with electronics, and given that we have two TVs and the cable stuff connects through our master bedroom closet (no, I don’t know why either) that meant 3 hours of strange people tromping about in my space.
Lila and I were not happy. We hid in the sewing room while I cut out patterns. The results = muslins cut out for McCall 3731 and New Look 6030. Plus, patterns cut for several shorts and/or pants. I guess I should hide there more often, I certainly get a lot done. The TV results = a lot more channels, most of which I still don’t want to watch. Yay?
I did put in a hem finally for the skirt I made from New Look 6083. It came out really well, and I think it might become a TNT pattern if I can fix the wonky hip issues (which I still think might be due to bad fabric choice). Here it is:
The button looks way more “off” than it actually is. I might need to move it over a bit, but the waistband shifts a lot. I did mention the ridiculously stretchy denim, right? The ripples between the waistband and the pocket are the part that bothers me, but I think they can be fixed by using non-stretchy fabric, and/or changing the pockets to make them higher.
The T-shirt says, “Betty White. Working hard for 88 years!” Because Betty White is AWESOMESAUCE.
