JUKILOVE 's Thoughts:

People say I’m OCD, but I say I don’t like sweaty palms. Be right back, I need to wash my hands.

I started on the lace tank top I mentioned two posts back. But of course I didn’t realize that lace will never stretch as much as anything knit, at least the lace I have. And of course I realize this when I’ve finish the entire piece. Resolution numero uno: replace regular side seam with snap button closure. Still didn’t fit, this is when I want my already small breasts to be smaller. Resolution numero deux: cut up the middle back and sew in a triangular panel. So far I’ve cut it, but I’m iffy about the panel, may look tacky? But I’ll probably be wearing a jacket over it more times anyways.

Outfit. Yes, I’m cheating, this is what I wore without the jacket a few posts back. But I didn’t have a chance to explain the whole outfit and it’s too late and dark to take a picture now. The inside white blouse, my mother made for me when I was in eighth grade. Still fits! A little tight though. The vest is actually from when I was a toddler. Also tight even though I took out the darts. It also has a pair of matching shorts, which I wear as pjs.

That painting I did in eighth grade, it’s one of three paints in which I used good paint because education boards are too cheap to let up some funding for the artsies. It’s been sitting in my garage/basement for all these years and I was sad thinking that my dad had thrown it out. One of my other paintings is still m.i.a, and the third is a wall mural that I haven’t visited in years.

In my second ever Chictopia post, I mentioned making a dress that will take a lot of inspiration from a Dior gown. I wanted to wear it to the semi formal end of next month, but news is I am to wear blue to match my team. So if I can finish the Dior-inspired dress in 4 days, I’d like to wear it on my birthday … as I trot around my house…

Ooh &, I just found out about threadbanger. And now I want to make my own undies. =P

girl... i love what you wrote - i can totally picture how you tried to find a solution and your brain just could not stop thinking, lOL!! so cute :-) BTW: snaps closure requires at least 3/8" overlapping - you can save at least 3/4" by using heavy hook eyes or loop-buttons, might be even more depending on size of closures, xoxo

LOL, at the point of trying snap buttons I was only worried about getting the thing over my shoulders. Inserting a panel worked out, but looks a bit funny in the back now, it's okay I'll be wearing something over it anyways. Thanks for the tip, you're definitely refining my skills.
