Princess Slip - Nightgown is done - L
This was primarily a mental exercise. Once I figured out how to make this work for my body it was just a sort of a jigsaw puzzle with a lot of long seams. I posted last week about all the measuring and mental gymnastics of changing a pattern for a short and slender woman into something for a tall and substantial woman to actually wear. And it worked! I added the sleeve caps as a visual way to balance my hips.
Now I'm starting the frock coat. Actually I'm blogging in an effort to avoid the frock coat. It's cut out and marked. Now I have to do the welt pocket. And YES! I finished another pair of socks!!!
