You remember that episode of Friends where Phoebe teaches Joey how to play the guitar? “Now, I don’t know the actual names of the chords, but I made up names for the way my hand looks while I’m doing them. So this is, ‘Bear Claw’ and this is ‘Old Lady.’
Unfortunately, my Mom, who is extremely talented with the sewing machine had to listen in and save the day a few times when the project started spinning out of control. She took it upon herself to teach me how to use a pattern the very next day and this blue blouse with red details was the result!
In short I love it! It has sleeves (that’s a Fashionably MADE first) and when I wore it, a total stranger went nuts over it. I’m talking, complements up the wazoo! Lesson learned: USE A PATTERN (touché Mom! You were so right!)
