Tasia loves me, this I know
for the postman tells me so…

I thought these weren’t even shipping until next week. When I got a PayPal notification on Friday that my pattern had shipped, I thought it was probably a glitch.

But no—there it was in the mailbox Monday morning.

Now for the hard questions—which view do I make first? And what fabric?

  1. Same here, mines arrived on Friday.
    I plan to tackle View A.

  2. Knowing your shape, I think you’d be happier with View A. I love the look of the pattern, but I’m pretty sure it falls into the category of “too young” for me these days. The closer I get to 40, the more comfortable I get with aging but some styles are starting to feel….wrong.

    • Well, the whole point of Project Drop Waist was to make View B a possibility ;). I agree view A would probably be better as-is… and I’ve got a couple of pieces of fabric that won’t be enough for a full-skirted version.

      I’m going to be thirty-two this fall… I have occasional twinges of “that’s too young,” but so far I fight them off. Nothing like a bit of denial. šŸ™‚

  3. Hello there! I’m sorry I’ve been so rude and only looked in your blog now, a month overdue! Usual thesis nonsence etc. Thanks for coming by! This is my first comment, though not my first visit – I stalked you for a bit before I got busy with work. But now you’re on my reader, so it’s official!

    I love your writing style and I’m bowled over by how much we have in common – we’re the same age, and I’ve only just finished up being a grad student, and I have two girls too (though much much smaller than yours), and I have the exact same fit issues with my waist! Though your body shape is still so much more beautiful than mine!

    • Oh, I’m glad you stopped by! I fully understand thesis nonsense, congratulations on getting through it. I hope to read more posts from you in the future! šŸ™‚

      Thanks so much for the compliments (blush).

  4. I got mine yesterday, so fast! I read the instructions on the subway ride home yesterday and it looks really straightforward. View A looks like it won’t take too long to put together and I’d like to wear it to a work event in early June! Though my inability to finish a project these days astounds me…

    • Yeah, I have some unfinisheds that are bugging the snot out of me. /sigh. I was hoping to have a dress for this weekend, but, not gonna happen.

      It does look deceptively simple, doesn’t it? šŸ™‚
