Ok, it's pretty apparent that I'm going to run out of time to make the second blouse. But it's ok; I need the twin set, too. So I'll be cutting that out tonight. Meantime, the grey blouse is sitting on the sewing machine, needle down, with the cuff in the process of being attached to the left sleeve. Then the handwork of sewing down the cuffs and collar on the wrong side and stitching on the buttons (I had to make loops for the cuffs...the style won't allow buttonholes). I'm a little nervous about the sleeves; when I just pull them on they feel unbelieveably tight right at the cap. I'm HOPING that when I put the sleeves in and trim the seam allowance it'll be ok. I haven't run into quite this problem before so I've just got put it together to see if it will do. Anyway, it'll be a snap to finish up once the hand sewing's done.
Now, I do have a previously-made top and a previously purchased top that I could substitute for both of these, if I have to (the rules allow that), so I guess I could sort of call myself done if I have to. But I'd rather get these two things done and increase my options. ;)
