Hmmm. That didn't sound good, did it?
The Titanic project is getting under way. (Better; it doesn't sound like looming icebergs this way).
There are many more patterns available, and the rules have changed so that there's more freedom in requesting patterns - we don't have to wait for specific assigned patterns. I'm thinking I may need to make another blouse, one for me this time, since I really enjoyed making the last one but didn't get to keep it.
Here are the patterns I have to choose from at this point. The descriptions are from VPLL's website, and the colors/fabrics basically describe the source garment, not how I would have to make it up.
2. E1000 - This beautiful ladies blouse features a pleated front with cutwork scallops and padded granitos at collar, cuffs and basque.
3. E0219 - This blouse without a lining is made of checked fabric in blue, green and white. The detachable collar is made of stiff white linen.
The second blouse is probably the least likely to be worn, but the part of me that loves repetitive idiot work (I find it soothing) is intrigued by the cutwork scallops and whatever the heck a "granito" is.
The last one, well, that looks like fun, doesn't it? Not the strangulating high collar, maybe, but the bias plaid and the interesting curved seam at the shoulder (and no visible armscye/sleeve seam) strike me as something I'd enjoy playing with. Plus this one has a front closure, so I could actually dress myself.
Which blouse do you think I should tackle for May? (1) E0335 - pleats with lace; (2) E1000 - pleats, cutwork scallops and "granitos"; or (3) E0219 - plaid, pleats and interesting seaming.
I'd love to hear your thoughts on this one.
