06 Apr Style Arc Straight Up
“Good with spandex” caught my eye on Style Arc ‘s Diana pattern page while I was writing my last post. Since I had a little spandex left over from this endeavor, and since I knew another Diana top was only an hour away, I headed back to the sewing machine .
Well, it only took an hour. It was “free” so to speak. The colors are great …………… OK, it’s all good but I’m not sure it’s me.
Let me just say I would have never bought this low-cut, body-hugging top had I had a chance to try it on first. Of course IF I was shopping, I would have bought more of the same, and I recognize this inadvertent wardrobe assortment as one of the beauties of sewing. I now own all kinds of things I would have never bought – maybe because they don’t exist anywhere but in my closet, but maybe because I was ready for a change.
Some of the clothes I’ve made are great and some are so-so, but they all represent my greatest efforts of escaping the rip-off, I mean the retail scene which was sucking me into a spending frenzy.
but maybe I’ll get some unexpected daughter approval and wear it the way Style Arc designed it with no frills or ruffles – just straight up.
Best wishes for a great weekend and Happy Easter to all who are celebrating!
