Why didn't I think of That?
My new patterns arrived this weekend and I am very excited to try making the Sencha Blouse from Colette Patterns.
I was mulling over how I was going to solve the puzzle of the buttoned-up back (I have limited mobility, and it would be difficult for me to button it) when I read the the Slapdash Sewist's blog today and she said that she would turn the back of a pattern into a neck slit with one button. And I had one of those epiphanies! Yes! That's exactly what I'll do. As you can see by the pieces on this picture,
Placing the back pieces on the fold and doing a faced slit, or doing a seamed back and then a hemmed slit would be super easy (child's play, she says, hopefully).
I'll let you know how it works out. We get the best ideas from our sewing friends, don't we?
