让发怒的

现在我要告诉你一个秘密——我H.A.T.E.逛街买衣服。我甚至不能告诉你多少。这部分地是因为我比较矮胖的,此刻,部分是因为我是相当高的(近6')和这两个因素的结合使得寻找现成的衣服挂共疼痛。其中的一个问题,我可以(和计划)做些什么,但我的身高是永远不会消失!所以,当我面对7月份我表弟的婚礼,我完全被那个可恶难倒“穿什么衣服?”题。我四处张望了一下,但经常发生的那样,我是完全由平庸的东西,我看到本地或在线。失意,突然发生,我认为我真的应该考虑实际使我有衣服穿。我不是一个很喜欢做衣服的人,但在朦胧而遥远的过去,我做过一点裁缝,所以在魔鬼赶我的时候,我必须得做只是没有穿!因此,在婚礼前几周,我找到了一个出售各种图案的网站,并在婆婆的帮助下去“购物”。经过一番嗯啊啊啊的折腾,我挑出了两种我认为适合自己的服装样式和一种衬衫样式,想着我应该有时间做至少一种。我也挖出来了我不久前买的自由版画并且很高兴地发现,我已经有了足够多的我最喜欢的两种样式,可以做出两种衬衫样式了!这件事对我起了决定性的作用只要我还需要买几米长的色带),所以我开始裁剪并在白色和蓝图上运行1.0版本。

(Uhmmm, yeah, I really wasn’t kidding about the podgy part!) This version came out ok, once I wrangled the ruffly front bit into submission, but I hadn’t really adjusted the pattern to better fit my shape, so I ended up having to really re-work the back seams quite heavily to make the shirt fit more closely. It did work, but with room for improvement. The ribbon tie round the back is not part of the original pattern, I added it in to help give the top better shape and to balance the ribbon on the front. This version is wearable, but I knew it could be better.

第二个版本是在各方面都好得多:

有了第一次的经验,我调整了纸的样式,使之更加贴合,我不需要在做对褶边之前重复做几次,而且整个叠起来也快了很多。你不会很快在英国缝纫大赛上看到我,但这提醒了我为什么能时不时地做衣服是很方便的。I still have the two dress patterns waiting in the wings, so there might be more clothing experimentation in the near future – especially since I’ve seen some really pretty fabric in Aberdashery that I suspect might really suit one of the patterns. A benefit that I really noticed from becoming a quilter is that I am now a much more accurate sewist generally, with a much better appreciation of seam allowances and how they work. It sounds daft, but I didn’t really fully understand the 5/8″ seam allowance for clothing when I made clothes in the past. But now I do, and I have a sewing machine that really helps me with things like that, and as a result I made clothes that I feel much happier about. So that’s a very positive thing.

如果你很好奇,我穿着蓝色/白色衬衫预婚礼晚会和蓝/橙一个实际的婚礼。织物,是非常美味的自由草坪,实在是太可爱穿,我认为无论是衬衫会看到郊游未来,尤其是在炎热的夏天,这是比我能说的很多婚礼的衣服!另外,我还有很多废料留下了一点自由拼凑如果心情需要我。好极了!
