Watch a mild mannered woman go nuts trying to remember her sewing skills on projects which are completely over her head.

Being optimistic that the Mint Chip Dress will be finished today, I have selected my next project: McCall's 5150 which is from 1959. Need to switch it up a little from the 1930's for the moment and make something, hopefully, straight forward. Yeah, like that ever happens.
I am planning to sew up the 3/4 sleeves since I work in an artic zone and here in the middle of summer am wearing long sleeves and 2, yes count them, 2 sweaters. I do reserve the right to change the sleeve length depending on my mood which is very changeable when it comes to all things sewing.
I will make this up in a turquoise cotton sateen. It is pretty but wrinkles sooooo darn easy.
