Posing with my fashionable crutches
Här kan man se ärmen närmare:
Close-up of the sleeve
Mönstret ser ut så här. Man rynkar alltså de två sidbitarna mot den smala remsan i mitten och sen syr man ihop ärmen och rynkar ärmkullen.
The sleeve pattern. The two large pieces are gathered and sewn to the narrow strip. Then you sew the under-arm seam and gather the sleeve head.
De beige nästrumpona som jag efterlyste förra veckan och sen hittade hos What Katie Did kom idag också, på den här bilden har jag strumpbyxvarianten på mig, men jag beställde också strumpor, samt likadana strumpbyxor i svart.
Since I've been in too much pain to think, or even read anything more complicated than a cheesy romance I've read before I have (with very long breaks) made a new dress from my well-tried '40s wrap dress pattern. I definitely don't have the brain capacity to modify patterns now so teh only changes from previous versions is that the skirt is slightly gathered and that I made a new type of sleeve, which I got from a dress from 1936 in Janet Arnold's Patterns of Fashion 2.
Since I wanted to do the dress justice I put on tights, shoes, necklace, bracelet and lipstick. And put up my hair - you have to say that for not being allowed to bathe for a few days to avoid getting bacteria inside the joint after injecting cortisone there: Slightly dirty hair is so much easier to put up.
The beige fishnets I looked for last week, and then found at What Katie Did arrived today . Here I'm wearing tights but I also ordered beige stockings and black tights.
