Where I am now
So, I end up with unfinished projects that sit around and make me crazy. This shirt (Simplicity 5074), for example, was started more than a year ago. Just before starting the sleeves (sleeves scare me!), I found out I was pregnant, so used that as an excuse to not finish.
I had a few minutes of kid- and husband-free time this morning so went down to my craft room and thought about what new project I could start. Then I saw the shirt and decided it NEEDS to be finished, even if I have to lose a bit more baby weight before I can actually wear it!
The pattern calls for voluminous sleeves that look nice, but honestly won't work with my lifestyle. I need something a little more compact, so I'm attempting to alter the pattern to something more to my liking. Keep in mind, I've never done a sleeve even with a pattern, let alone trying to change one up on the fly, so who knows how it will turn out.
