The rain has let up just long enough for me to take some pics in the garden. I may look cool and fresh in these photos, but, au contraire…
The lens on my camera kept fogging up!
And the outfit. I recently purchased the Daisy Designer two-fer from Style Arc’s Etsy shop. I was after a baggy-leg pants pattern, but this bundle was a good buy for only a couple dollars more.
Small whinge session:
Style Arc drives me nuts with their sizing. The only finished garment measurements they provide are for their size 10. Umm. What is that 10? US, RTW, European, AU, equator… I’ve no idea. Their only helpful hint is that they use a 2″ circumference grade from size to size. Useless, and it has kept me away from most of their expensive patterns.
No numbers on the pattern pieces. Come on…
And typically, they’re big on drawings and short on pics of their garments on real human beings. They’re not alone – Hot Patterns is rather famous for this lazy marketing. I admit I always feel a bit like a sucker when I buy from either of them…because I know that what you see is not what you get.
