After a fun filled night of vomiting kiddies, the same two as last time, and some puke-y feelings of my own, I think, I hesitate to say, we’re all OK. I’m actually writing this so late because I’m afraid to lay down and wake up to the sound of someone retching. Like I did at about 3AM (the girl). And again at 6 (the boy, for round two. One was IN his bed).
Last night, I killed time listening to the funky long(-ish, according to the comments on YouTube, there’s a 17 minute version!) cut of Please Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood (Kill Bill was on earlier that day) and tonight, I worked on Archer. I’m feeling pretty pleased with myself! It has come together, to this point,
pretty mostly painlessly!
However, it is a tiny bit….roomy. I was aiming for slightly too large, rather than slightly too small. I know that the back of anything I make should be smaller than the front, but I was confuzzled about how to adjust that and keep the armholes and bottom ruffle in tact. I think you’ll agree, the ruffle bit looks pretty good.
Btw, I put on these pants to save you (and the internet) from pictures of me in tattered, red long johns.
Tucked in a bit it has more shape, but the armhole would be too low. Also, is it too plain without the pockets??
I tried removing just a bit.
Can you see a slight difference between the left and right side?
I took it in on the right.
I’m not fussed either way. This is not meant to be a fitted top. And I actually have days when I want to wear something that fits exactly like this. I just don’t want it to look sloppy. You, know.
What do you think?
Add the pockets?
Take in both sides?
Let it back out and leave it as it is?
