Cat Nap Sunday
I can’t say that I am one for napping, but after the hike we went on today, I needed one. And what made things better was that the cat napped with me.
I’ve been trying to figure out what my next big project will be. I’m itching to start something new, but knowing that our house needs work, its hard for me to designate the time to my projects. I have a finished design template for my sewing tutorials, but I have very little drive to compile them. My energy level is zilch.
My goal for one week from today is to get my first sewing tutorial up and to finish my personal custom bra.
Top Cup Pattern Alteration
I just made myself a very pretty bra, but forgot to follow my own directions of testing the fit before actually cutting the good fabric. I discovered that the pattern for the top cup that I have included in my book may need to be altered. When I made my sample, the strap point on the front cut way to far to my arm.
To make a quick fix of the top cup, trace off the top cup onto another piece of paper. Fold the two ends towards each other. Crease the center clearly. Open it back up and take the side with the strap placement on it and fold it towards the center crease line. Line up the edge of the cup to the crease line and press the new fold line. This line marks the 1/4 point on the cup. From this point, begin your strap placement. I just altered the 34G and had to move the strap placement over by a full inch.
Sorry the image being sideways. I can’t figure how to rotate the image in Blogger.
