Did you know that’s the title of a cabaret song by American composer William Bolcom? It’s about one page of music for piano and mezzo-soprano voice…
Well, you get a bonus track called “Black Max” on this video, but it’s the best one I could find on YouTube (love Dawn Upshaw!) I’m waiting for… flannel underlining, buttons, lining… oh, and probably the right colour of thread so I can finish the cashmere project and start on DD1’s winter coat (I still haven’t begun to cut it out.) But I haven’t been idle. Here’s another version of Simplicity 4076.
It went together super fast, as all second-time-’round sew ups do. It’s the poly-lycra knit mentioned in SSS 27 and 28. I just love this top. I made my two versions because of the lack of long-sleeved tops that were so noticeable during Self-Stitched September, and I’m very partial to wrap tops as I find them the “flatteringest” type of top for me these days. You can read my complete review at PatternReview.com.
It’s funny what people think of what I wear (Wow! You look so terrific! Why are you dressed so nicely?), and how it compares to what I think of it (Not sure about this print. Kinda looks casual. Wonder how this poly knit will wear… Is this print too loud?).
Just a thought: Do you wear your self-stitched garments with pride and confidence, or do you question your choices as you walk around your world in them?
