Do you ever get a fabric or pattern home, that you were once excited enough about - to happily pick all the necessary notions, then once you have it home, you wonder why? Why did I chose this fabric? Or Why did I chose this pattern? I must have some sort of blinders on when I am fabric shopping or forget completely what types of clothing look best on me once the pages of the pattern catalogs begin to fly. I am suffering from that today. Not the fabric part, but more the pattern question. I am making Colette 1018, the Jasmine. I did not buy fabric for it, so I am using some stash fabric that is at least 20 years old to make a muslin. Working on the bias is just not one of my favorite things, and usually results in clinging to body parts I prefer to not emphasize. I am making the sleeves right now, but everytime I try it on, it just seems.......not me. I don't know. I am going to trudge on and hope for the best. Maybe once it is all together, I will change my mind and love it. One can hope, right?
