People, can you see what’s wrong with the above picture (other than the crappy iPhone quality)?
Two nights ago, I tried on my tweed jumper (aka B5147) and was faced with double trouble. Let’s just say the girls are not happy. Now do you see what’s wrong? There is major boob smooshing going on and not the good kind.
How did this happen? This is my TNT folks. Not some random pattern I picked up at a bar. B5147 and I are going steady. I thought there might even be a ring in the near future. I feel betrayed! Suddenly, B5147 doesn’t return my calls and now this! Ok, my metaphor is losing steam here. Seriously though… My bust dart is about 1 inch too high (looks like I have low hanging fruit, hah!) and the fisheye dart looks too high too.
What do I do in this situation??? Is it a simple matter of sacrificing the side seam allowances and then the dress will fall to the right level with some room for the girls? Or do I have to actually release and lower the darts? FYI, the dress fits everywhere else. Just the bust is the problem. Please let me know your suggestions.
I guess all the bad food choices and little exercise are catching up to my meager metabolism, not to mention the too little sleep I’ve been getting of late. *sigh* Gravity and aging are not my friends.
In disgust, I turned to knitting Jack’s sweater last night and was hit with another disaster. My gauge swatch had lied to me and my knitting was 3.5 inches too narrow. (Is there no loyalty with yarns and fabrics any longer? They’re just like men!) I had to frog the entire back and start over. However, now I am confident I am on the right track with Jack’s sweater, although I am not entirely confident I will get either project done by Sunday when our photo shoot is scheduled. 😦
Hope your yarn and fabrics are treating you nicer than I have been treated this week.
