Blue flowered blouse

I finnally had time for a photo of the blue flowered blouse being worn. I am happy with the length. I did find that due to the hip width, now I definitely needed the darts sewn to give it some shaping, so I did that today.

As I think I said before, I love this!

Also today I hemmed the red wool skirt. Put buttonholes and buttons on the sleeves of the red dress. Finished the hem of the girl's red skirt. Put an elastic waist and a hem in the yellow girl's skirt!
Also, changed the length of the red herringbone skirt from some time ago. I had made it just a bit too long in the search for the right length not to ride halfway up my thigh when I would sit down. I felt really dowdy in it when standing up, so I took it up about 3 cm. Not much, but should be better. I had done a bound hem before, so this change meant taking the binding off and reapplying it in the new place before trimming the extra and then restitching the hem. It will be worth it though.

So, lots of finishing and sorting in here today!

Oh and a doctor visit. Hurrah! blood tests mean I need more thyroxin, so that should give me the bit of boost I have been feeling I need. (I had thyroid surgery about 25 years ago, and have been on synthetic thyroxin ever since. My idea of enough and their idea of enough never seem to match. But this is a new Doctor. I already like him!)
