yay geeber! i was away and didn't see that you'd posted pics! i'm so glad you posted the modeled pic - i was worried that it wouldn't fit right!
i've been equally bad about posting pics, and i'm really sorry. the last few weeks have been crazy, which is no excuse!
geeber sent me an awesome package!
lots and lots of fabric (which i already have plans for!), a really cool messenger bag pattern that's made by someone within a few hours drive from her, really awesome black stretch pants that i didn't model because they're super duper long on me and it looks really funny cause i'm really short! (geeber left them long and unhemmed so that i could hem them to where i wanted them, which is PERFECT, cause i have about 5 or 6 pairs of capri length black stretch pants, and i've been too lazy to make myself a longer pair!)
and CHOCOLATE! andes, my favourites! yum! (my mom stole the york patties as soon as i opened the box, so they're not in the picture!)
and she ALSO made me this awesome shirt! it's super soft and silky and thin, perfect for layering. (i don't have your letter in front of me geeber, so i can't remember what the fiber content was! but i love it!)
this was part of the delay in posting pictures, i finally gave up on the idea of actually modeling it (since that would require cleaning enough of the house to have a clear background in the picture!)
and put it on my dressform for the picture. the dressform is much smaller than me, so rest assured that it fits perfectly! and excuse the fact that you can see my dressform's bra through the shirt....
for some reason my camera hated the colour of the shirt, but it's a super lovely olivey green. i tried to edit the pic in photoshop, but it's still not exactly right.
i'm so glad you liked everything! i've actually been playing around with adapting the shirt pattern into a super comfy dress, and i think it's working rather well! i made one with gathering across the front seam line, for a friend who's prego, and it turned out lovely! you should play around with it too!
thank you so much for everything! such a great package!
oh! and i wanted to post a pic of the pattern i sent, because i'm really ridiculously proud of it for some reason!
i traced it out on old bedsheets, which is what i do with all my patterns - they hold up so much better over time, and barely need any pins, since the bedsheet fabric doesn't slip around while you're cutting! i typed up all the instructions in word, and drew/traced the shirt views, scanned them, and inserted the pics into the word document. i tried to create the images in photoshop, but that SO DID NOT work! i'm not that technologically advanced!
