Somehow between fitting DGD for the green vest *yesterday*
(using the satin lining as a toile) and again today before
putting needle to velveteen, she grew 1/2" longer in the CF.
I suppose it's possible the steam pressing shrank the cotton
velveteen by that much. :-( Fortunately, I have plenty of
fabric, so I'll re-cut the front and side front. Sure glad
I checked before putting more work into it.
However, I do have two more shirts finished, and everything
I want to take is clean and pressed. And the Slinky arrived
from denverfabrics.com a few minutes ago. It's in the
washer on cool right now, so I should be able to get the
dressy pants done for the trip. Now to start packing,
Beverly, who is determined to take only what is absolutely
necessary. Yeah, right! ;-}
