Happy Easter . . .

My traditional Spring/Easter bunny candle, never lit & forever young!

… or Passover, Ramadan, Spring, or whatever you may be celebrating!

It’s been busy ’round here, but not blog-busy. The computer is somewhat stable, and I solved one tablet problem with a new power cord, but I still can’t get into IG.

I finally located their “help/service/whatever-they-call-it” desk. The statement above the box where you type in your problem’s details says they will not answer your submission.

Somehow, that didn’t give me much encouragement. Nevertheless, I typed in the exact wording of the error message that keeps coming up when I try to log in. 🤞🤞

(Side note to Helga & Nic, if you read blogs – I’ll still be sewing up my skirt on Monday, but wish I could be reading everyone’s comments.)

Meanwhile . . . . . . .

Have been re-evaluating these 2 tops. The striped shirt was purchased from a Virginia charity shop because I loved the colours and cotton quality (designer is French – Façonnable). If memory serves, I found the cami in Chicago at TJ Maxx.

Yes, I know the cami’s stretchy centre-front lace bags in the photo, but after a wash & dry it’s fine. (I hauled it outta the laundry when I got the idea to try them together.) Do they look okay? I can’t decide. What do you think??

I’m nervous about cutting off more of the shirt’s sleeve length, so I can wear it in warmer weather. Currently it hangs in the closet in “winter” which is too cold & damp for it without something underneath.

The cotton of the shirt is superb – hence my reluctance to cut into it too much. The shoulders are wide (it’s a size L) so I’d altered them with some bulky pleats. (Didn’t wanna cut that cotton!) Then spent a recent afternoon carefully ripping out the pleats. Lol! Now it looks like dropped shoulder with sleeves.

Stand measures a fraction over 1″ (please excuse bad lighting).

I really want to remove the collar because it’s too hot for summer. Would it be really weird if I left the 1″ collar stand?

In the photo on the left, I folded the top collar underneath. What do you think??

Will keep thinking about changes to make this a more wearable shirt, but your suggestions would be much appreciated, Dear Readers!

Meanwhile, hope everyone’s computers/laptops/tablets/phones never become too old to update easily, and the Easter Bunny, or whatever, bring you delectable treats!

  1. I removed the collar ‘flap’ with a pair of fine scissors, leaving the collar stand on a favourite shirt. A grandad collar – the shirt and I got on a lot better following the change. I did need to pull out a few threads with tweezers to get the edge really neat and tidy.
