Sarah Veblen (of The Complete Photo Guide to Perfect Fitting book ) gave me fitting and fashion help last Friday for seven patterns in two hours. I had worked hard on getting six new pattern mock ups ready and also brought a Kwik Sew jacket from years ago. I was more then thrilled to find that we agreed that all seven of them are worth adjusting and making up.

On Monday I made the pattern adjustments that Sarah marked on the mock up and cut out the fashion fabric and the lightweight silk organza for underlining.

|For this top my major adjustments were all in the raglan armhole area and under the armhole.|
Today was my day to sit and baste those two layers together and watch that charming youtube show.

In the meantime, I'd like to thank everyone who read my last post about my Patternreview membership. Your thoughtful answers and different perspectives are helping me develop my next steps. I felt a little awkward raising the topic but the range of points of view are respectful and genuine. That's the kind of dialog I appreciate. As my minister says frequently, "We don't have to think alike to love alike."
