Thinking back, the last time I lost sleep over an ensemble was during the trim dilemma for my golden gown.

I was irritable all that week, and spent every waking moment trying to figure it out.  All I have going for me right now is the length of time before I plan to wear my doublet bodice.  I’ve spent the better part of this evening re-copying the necessary sizes for the bodice (3 to be exact).  I don’t mind the pattern tracing bit, it’s the amount of time that I’ve spent on this over the last few days that bothers me.  I don’t know why each piece doesn’t fit, and I’ve already made two mock-ups.  The alterations and re-pinning that I’ve done only makes the bodice ill-fitting in other spots.  If the mock-up from the next round doesn’t work out, I may have to try draping fabric to get the pieces I need.  Ultimately, I’d like to combine the 3 side and front pieces because of the fabric design.  However, I can’t see that far into the future with the way the pattern and I are fighting.


On the productive side, I made a hip scarf…kind of.  Unfortunately, the fabric is too thin, and I strongly dislike rolled and narrow hems.  At this point, I also strongly dislike chiffon.  I have shell findings that I plan to attach with embroidery thread like coins, but without the sound.  It fits at least…much more than I can say about my doublet bodice mock-ups.

/cross fingers for a good Tuesday

Thanks for stopping by.
