Light linen Butterick 5948

It has been so long since I have sewn. I took my time with this simple spring top.  I made 3 muslins. Just trying to get the shoulders right was a trial. Not sure if it is my shoulders or the pattern. I finally ended up using a RTW top that fit me well to help redraw the shoulders/ sleeve heads. 
I changed the neckline, wanted a little interest so that the pale color of the linen did not just blend into my skin.  
Fitting with darts with no breasts was a challenge. I wanted to leave room for what will come, but do not know what size the girls will be yet. 
I love the neckline.  This was such a happy sew for me.  Feels good to be back.   On a non sewing note, I had heard from so many people that your hair grows back a different color and texture after chemo for  a lot of people.  I am not sure what I had imagined, but curly white was not it!  That being said, I am thankful for that white curly fuzz.  Looking forward to eyebrows and eyelashes  😌 Stay happy Keep sewing And if you can't sew

Spring is in the air.

I found myself in Joanns last weekend. Not my first time since the my diagnosis, surgeries and chemo. But it was the first time it did not depress me. It was the first time I found myself planning. I Picked out a simple spring top pattern and some lovely linen. I left with a smile on my face. Spring is in the air. 
Stay happy. 
Keep sewing
And if you can't sew
Enjoy the view.
