Spent a bunch of hours working on the bodice of this #hinterlanddress, and, well, it doesn’t fit. Turns out it’s hard to do fittings when you’re wearing your baby, and hard maybe to come to terms with the way your body changes when you have a baby (like are these my new ribs forever? Probably.)
So I traced a new bodice, grading between sizes, moved the dart, and did a FBA. Then I spent few days knitting and doing things like hanging shelves and this clothes rack in my studio to make it a more functional space. So I think I’m ready to sew again, hopefully in time to make an entry for the #hinterlandsewoff. And I’m appreciative of the fabric store in my neighborhood that stocks seconds and closeouts where I almost always find gold, like this black linen blend, that doesn’t make it too painful to go back for another three yards.
