I am back from my much needed annual ski trip to Gatlinburg, Tennessee. We go every year, and I look so forward to it every year. Its normally 8-20 couples who share a cabin, plenty of drinks, food, laughs and fun. This year was the largest group ever and we had a wonderful time.
Just a few pictures of our trip. This is not the cabin we stayed in this year, its actually last years cabin, but for some reason I do not have a picture of this years cabin.
I made it off the trip with not one injury but I get home and fall down my stairs and now I have a swollen and bruised knee.
I was reading a few blogs, and since I am a big busted girl, I wanted to learn all about FBA Full Bust Alterations. I read somewhere a long time ago that most commercial patterns are drafted for a B cup. I am a "D" and I have sewn so many garments where I didn't get a good result in that area, so of course my interest was peaked.
This picture is from the web and is for illustration purposes only.
So, I slothed around blogland to get all the information I could and I was able to find some great articles that I will share:
There are so many more websites with information, just wanted to share a few that I was able to follow along with. I have not had an opportunity to do a FBA as of yet, but I plan to practice really soon.
If you ladies out there have articles or information you would like to share I would appreciate all the help I could get.
I am a creature of habit, and I tend to pull out the same few outfits for work. We celebrate birthdays here in my office and I saw a picture of myself at to birthday celebrations within a weeks time and I had on the same outfit. All I could do was shake my head and laugh. But in the back of my mind I knew I had to get busy and get back to my sewing endeavors. That was all I need to get me back on point.
I have been building an inspiration board on what I want my work flow fashion to look like:
My goal is to make in addition to anything else, something that will go into my work flow wardrobe. It's the 6th of the month and I have not accomplished a darn thing. My ski vacation is next week, and I have not made the two sweat suits I was intending to make. I have a Little Black Dress challenge that is due on Friday, and I have not, picked out let alone started on my pattern for the LBD Challenge.
It all started with that darnt blasted flu I am still trying to recovering from. But I have not no more excuses, basketball season is over and I have a craft fair that I am doing March 9, 2013, so I must get busy.
