So, here’s another clothing reflection of my state of mind while living in MA. It obviously wasn’t doing as well as I thought.

Simplicity 4020, Version A:


I really loved Liana’s top, so I dragged out some lovely purple velour. I’ve never had much success with velour; I can’t suppress it’s creeping tendencies. As I was cutting this out, I *knew*, just KNEW, that the doubled over cuffs and waist would creep like crazy, but did I stop? Nooo. I knew, I did it anyway and it creeps. So the top is a wash.

I didn’t wear this style in the 80’s, so I didn’t realise how big I’d look, especially with the shiny, furry fabric. I look like a big, juicy plum. So the style is a wash.

I also liked view D/E, which Stacy reviewed. Of course, she has a slim waist. I suspect that with my extra pounds and large bust, the style would be unattractive on me. So the pattern is a wash.

Of course, this might be a subconscious way of ridding myself of fabric that just isn’t suitable – Darwinism for stash.
