Change of Plans (again)


 Perhaps you have seen the commercial (screenshot above) about retirees and they keep changing their retirement plans.

So again I have a change of plans for the Burda pattern.  I decided to use a different pattern similar to the Burda one I was going to make. I decided I do not want to keep adjusting this pattern. The traced pattern is a hot mess and tired of trying to make it fit; I'm too old for all this.

 The one I am going to use is from Love Notions-The Willow Wrap top.


The ruching is there, the wrap is there but different and this pattern fits me with only a few tweaks. I still have the Burda pattern printout.  With a pattern of the right size and the potential to hack, I think I will get closer to what I had in mind.

The predominant color will be black and I am auditioning a couple of fabrics that look great with black.

I hope to have a new top soon! There is always a chance of a change in plans!

More later.

  3. I loved "I'm too old for all this." I thought I was the only sewist who says that! But then I often get stuck and don't want to try something else. You have inspired me to let some things go and just move on in another direction. Looking forward to seeing your new top!

    1. Years ago I was like you described. After retiring 3 years ago, I just feel like I don't have the time or the need to make something perfect. I am too old to waste time. I decided that to get something to work that I spent weeks trying to make a pattern to fit without success was time to just move on. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.
