Thank you daughter, for fixing my Blogger account! She had to do a lot of finagling to get rid of my hacker, but my Google account is now back in my possession! Thanks to those who responded to my "desperate" post, also. It's not fun to have your privacy invaded.
I'm working on this Vogue jacket, slowly, but nonetheless, making progress.
I made bound buttonholes, all of them turning out well. I was singing a happy tune at this point.
I wanted a 3/4 length sleeve with turned up cuffs. This is where I got stupid. When I shortened the sleeve, I shortened it wayyyy too much! There wasn't enough fabric to cut new sleeves, of course. What to do? I added a piece to the sleeves at the bottom. See the seam?
I made a muslin of the cuff, and pinned it on the sleeve. It is a 3" deep cuff, and covers the offending seam. There will be a facing, turned to the inside.
"All's well that ends well"! For the jacket, and my blog issue!
