Hi, I'm Heather. I blog here about my sewing obsession. Here's the deal. I sew a lot. Probably a bit too much. I have amassed a large hoard of fabric and patterns, probably way too many. This is where I come to document my insanity. I'd love it if you'd comment and make me feel less alone in my chaos. Or you can email me at heathertyfeatherty at gmail dot com.
I'm going to be re-cutting a new top to my swimsuit, so my first post on construction is delayed by a day or two. Why? Cause I don't like the way this looks in back. Instead of the u-shaped straps, I'm going to go with a sraight-across tank style which means changing the front straps to halter-style.
It's too short in the back. Once I hem it, it will be higher than I'd like. I adjusted the front for length, but forgot all about the back.
Once I get bra cups installed and the elastics hemmed and finished, I do think I'm going to like it.
Oh, and maybe there was a little bit of this going on. Oops! It's not that I don't want to show my failures, Lord knows there are plenty of them. It's just that I'd rather have a clean shot of construction without all my oops included.
So stay tuned! More progress on making a swimsuit tomorrow....
