So I have a pretty good "eye." I can often eyeball stuff and just make it work sewing-wise. Maybe because I've always been a visual person and my parents were both artists. Maybe because I'm so math impared I've developed the skill to compensate. Who knows. But things like drafting a simple sleeve for myself that fits the first time with no calculations and no pattern, straight lines, adding even seam allowances around curved pattern pieces, drawing a circle freehand, I'm pretty good at all of those.
This is good because I am terrible with math, but it's bad because every once and a while I majorly f*&^ up.
But with Effie I gotta say, the eyes have it. I was ON the other day, eyeballing all kinds of stuff and getting it right and DONE. I love when that happens. Anyway, that's a large part of why I got so much done. I threw my wig, jacket and accessories on for a quick dopey pic. Can you say PURPLE?
