Another Simplicity 2938, and another cardigan. I personally can't wait for daylight savings to finish this weekend so it's not sunrise when we leave for work in the morning.
I got home from work this afternoon and got straight to work on my cocktail dress. I basted a sleeve in and then tried it on to see how it fit.
I'm definitely not a genius. I didn't think to factor in the heavy weight of the fabric (this stuff is the equivalent of rugby knit in terms of thickness and weight) and now the sleeve and shoulder is hanging down past my natural sleeve line. I also seem to have no ability in easing a sleeve in. Yuck.
I am so tempted to put an armhole facing in and call it sleeveless, but I think I have enough sleeveless dresses in my wardrobe as it is.
So it's back the drawing board. First steps will be to take out some of the armscye, raise the shoulders and the shoulder facings (so much for having sewn those in!) and take in the sides of the bodice.
I'm was hopeful I could finish tonight. Perhaps I should order takeaway instead of cooking dinner, and keep working.
