Yup - another FO....for a family member. lol. I had planned on making a top for myself, using some of my gorgeous $1 FIDM fabric from my LA trip. I cut the pieces and brought them to my sewing class. When I got to class, I discovered that my instructor had worked on the same pattern during the weekend. She advised me that it came out a bit short for her and she had to do a narrow hem. Well, I have a long waist to begin with, so I was a bit nervous. True to her word, it was coming out too short for me. My Sister is 2 or so inches shorter than me, with a a shorter waist than I. I serged the heck out of the sides and the shoulders and voila, a successful FO for HER! lol. That's what Sisters are for I guess. Here she is rockin' it in her cell phone "photo-shoot".
I could just beat my skinny Minnie, older Sister down....if it wasn't for the fact that she packs a really hard punch for such a little thing. lol. What can I say? Our older brother really taught her how to fight when he came back from the Army!
