powerless...

I wanted to show you a picture of my latest project, but my camera ran out of juice and I can't find the charger...it's been so long that I can't remember where I left it. Aging rapidly.

Thank you for your suggestions on the adjusting-sewing-patterns-that-really-don't-fit-me-topic - I'll look into it!
In the meantime I found this fancy gadget - a sewing ruler by Prym that more or less combines all the curves, angles, etc. you might need for constructing or altering a pattern. Oh yeah... and it does buttonholes, too. Pretty pricey at 50 euros, but of course I really really want one...

Speaking of wanting something badly...why oh why does target.com not ship internationally??? Not even a teeny, tiny top? Le sigh.

Wow I want one of those rulers too, I mentioned in my last comment about the perfect fit system and lutterloh. If you go to voguefabraccsonline they have this ruler set for 54 dollar US dollar so it will be a bit cheaper than the one in Euro. Also which top are you looking to buy from Target? If you wanted I could purchase it and you could reimburse me.

I'll definitely check out Lutterloh, I remember reading about it on a blog somewhere but can't really remember which one. What put me off the last time -if I remember correctly - I think that you have to take a course to learn how it works. But thanks for the tip, Mona - I'll look into it again! And thank you so much for your Target-top offer, but I'm afarid it will be more trouble for you than it's probably worth...

I live at Target. I'll send you a top in exchange for another candy shipment around X-mas! ;)
