*sigh* not worth fighting over

Don't call me chicken, she bites. You can't actually see her fangs in this picture, but you can see the look in her eyes.

I finally finished *the* shirt. I love the print, I love the neckline. I love the way that this shirt doesn't pull or twist of bag open in the front. I just love these Italian patterns. The wear ability is greatly enhanced by that front yoke piece that extends the shoulder and changes the angle of the front wrap over.

Who do you know that loves what they sew as much as I love my Marfy patterns? They have some kind of Italian magic that subtracts 10 lbs. That is worth the extra money to me. They save me time because I know that they are going to fit!

This makes it garment #4 for my 10 piece wardrobe:

I still have no pants or skirts finished, but I have an interview this afternoon and another one in the morning.
Wish me luck.

Whew! Marfy 1903

I am making progress on *the* shirt. I sure hope I like it, it seems a bit wild for an interview. In fact, I am not sure where I would wear it. I don't have any flamenco dancing planned. I will have to see how it looks under a jacket.
I have the attachment done on the one easy side, but I still haven't really figured out how I am going to do that on the outside. I am leaning towards a button placket like she suggested.
This is actually much more wearable than it looks. I wore it around the house a bit (mostly trying to get a good photo) and it doesn't seem to gap as much as I thought it would.
Now, I am going to have to bite the bullet ad let the sides of that jacket out so that I can finish these sleeves. I think I am going to have to make cuffs in order to keep sleeve fluff from spilling out.
