Choir Wardrobe 061913
After deliberately spending three years growing my hair out to one length, I went to my hairdresser Friday and had her re-layer it.
I'm not so sure I feel at home in such frothyness, but, believe it or not, that is my hair in pretty much its natural state. I have fought it for most all my life, trying to get it to lie down and behave and be NEAT, but it just won't cooperate. Since I'm trying to define my own personal style, I decided I needed to start with accepting my hair the way it is. I could get it chopped off short, and I may yet do that, but there's nothing distinctive about short hair. This may be weird and un-neat and not quite appropriate for a Woman of A Certain Age, but it is uniquely me so I'm going to TRY to make it work for me.
We'll see how it goes.
And then there was the one that got away....
I bought some lovely black/white/silver knit from one of my favorite online vendors and proceeded to make up my latest TNT T shirt pattern, Jalie 2566. I knew I was dealing with fabric that didn't have a boatload of stretch, but I thought I'd be ok. I have a version of this made from a really stretchy knit that's almost too big, and another made from a fairly stable knit that's ok.
I guess this knit is more than just 'fairly' stable, because once I finished it and put it on...well, 'sausage casing' came to mind. Fortunately, it fits The Flute Player rather well.
Which is ok...she needs some real wardrobe T-shirts, instead of just the graphics-printed promo shirts. So I gave it to her... Sigh...
