Blouse: BWOF 03-07-129
I had another opportunity to use Kenneth King's curved seam technique. I love this technique. I also used the collar technique demonstrated on the Threads Insider
Techniques DVD. I love that technique, too. Since I've made this blouse twice before, the blouse
construction was straightforward. I truly see the advantage of a TNT pattern. Now, I am a believer. The fabric is a linen/poly blend (bought during Philly PR Weekend) with the look of linen but none of the tendency to wrinkle. The only alteration I made was to lengthen the blouse. Currently, this is an old maid blouse – I didn't make pants to wear with it. I have enough black or tan pants to wear with this blouse.
While my DD was home, I had to take down my cutting table for one night to accommodate an overnight guest. Since DD was recovering from surgery, she couldn't help with the lifting the table requires. After DD and guest left, I struggled to put the table back together all by myself and I realized I had to make some changes. I put the problem in the "To Be Solved" lobe of my brain and waited for inspiration. The solution came in a flash!
Changing the leg assembly from this:
made it possible to assemble the legs independently of the table top, position them over the bed and finally attach the table top. The task is still unwieldy, but I can do it by myself!
