sunday sevens #30

one more lounge top finished, with neck & arms already lowered - yeah!

This week’s been another hot & humid one, with my “get up & go” having done so long ago.

Sunday Seven for this week is looking a bit thin, but hey, it’s August, and can do with a wee vacation. 😎

It’s been a week of chaffing at the bit, so to speak. More specifically, necks & arms not cut as comfortably as I’d have liked. So I’ve gritted me teeth, and fixed ’em.

My denim dress badly needed an arm alteration after I’d jacked up the shoulders at the beginning of the season in an attempt to raise the low neckline. (It didn’t work.)

When last heard from, a rayon blouse I’d made last summer had a questionable binding. Given the fabric’s a rayon and the binding’s cotton, it just wasn’t a match made in heaven. Felt more like the opposite, so it got ditched. I tackled those armholes as well. All should be hand-stitched whilst watching Inspector Lewis: The Final Season in a bit.

Of course, will have my new needle kit close to hand (thank you, Ali!), and am surprised how much just having it somewhere around the sewing table helps mentally with the thought of having to hand sew something. Formerly, that stuff was in a box in another room, which as we all know greatly inhibits thoughts of doing any.

(What? Get up offa my chair, walk into the other room, dig out the box, and find the needles? 😱 You gotta be kidding!)

Now, here are some piccies. Please click one so you don’t miss all the lengthy explanations that are either cut off or hidden.

May everyone have a comfortable week full of everything you  💕  to do! 😘

    Love your flowery top, so fresh and cool! (perfect for this nasty weather, eh?) Good job on neckline and armhole rework (those armholes are intimidating to me)…fabric looks very nice. Sweet of Ali to send the needles. And I have an old (tiny) seam ripper – it will be relocated to the kitchen posthaste!

      Glad to help out in your kitchen! Yes, Ali is a real sweetheart! Thank you for the kind words on that blouse. We’re back to 90’s starting tomorrow, but hopefully the humidity won’t be so high it pushes the heat index over 100. Hope you can stay cool up there!

    Hee hee – I can so relate to the effort involved in dragging oneself to the next room to fetch something. I can’t even be arsed to reach the table in the same room if I’m comfortably ensconced in the corner of one of our very deep corner sofas, wrapped in a crocheted blanket and sat on by one or two dogs….
