I love this cheery red fabric and I had originally intended it for Greta, but then decided to use it for myself! I wanted something casual. I like the look of shirts where the back is longer than the front, plus with all the bending and picking up of children I do, it adds to my modesty. I altered a simplicity 2246 pattern, which I most recently used for it's intended shirt dress. I changed the neckline and the sleeves. And overall, it turned out well. It definitely has it's flaws, but it's been a long time since I've done any sort of alterations and I don't think I've ever changed anything as much as I did this. So whether or not it's perfect is not a point of concern. I tried something new and succeeded well enough and that's success enough for me! I'm dying for a bodyform so that I can manipulate more patterns!
“The moon does not fight. It attacks no one. It does not worry. It does not try to crush others. It keeps to its course, but by its very nature, it gently influences. What other body could pull an entire ocean from shore to shore? The moon is faithful to its nature and its power is never diminished.”Deng Ming-Dao
