Eyeing Effie

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?
