So, I'm practicing the art of saying "no". My sleeve redesign project from a Value Village blouse has turned into an un-design instead.
Before (left) and after. All I did was remove the decorative band that gathered the sleeve. It was cute, but made me unable to raise my arms. I had some grandiose idea of a sleeve redesign. It was going to be fabulous...
But I had a friend help me gain perspective. "You know the cutest sleeve you could have on that blouse?" she asked. Tell me. "Any sleeve you could wear tomorrow."
And so an item in the sewing basket gets an early parole. I'll wear it tomorrow. And it will be cute.
