There’s nothing quite like the purr of a sewing machine to melt away the stress. I needed a break this weekend. All the testing and craziness of the last month of school was starting to take a toll on me. This afternoon, I pulled out some fabric and a pattern. Design #10 from the 05/2007 issue of Ottobre Woman was almost perfect. The back was fine, but the waistband needed to be lower in the front. I also pulled out a pair of nearly perfect jeans for comparison. The pattern is close….very, very close. I tried them on without the waistband. So very pleased. Because I have made so many changes to the waistline, the waistband needs to be totally redrafted. That shall have to wait until tomorrow, when I am more rested.
