Today was all muslin, all the time. I cut out and assembled my Robson in plain cotton muslin (and thankfully, I had just enough left over from previous projects). I tried it on. I stared at my shoulders. I pinned, I sewed, I seam ripped, and I pinned and sewed some more. Then I stared at my shoulders again. I raised my arms. I lowered them. I tugged and pulled and poked and prodded. Then I took off the coat and declared defeat. Temporary defeat.
I WILL figure this out. Just not today.
The Robson is giving me a run for my money, that’s for sure. As much as I respect Tasia and her company, Sewaholic patterns and their narrow shoulders are just not a good match for me. I’m considering switching patterns, but I haven’t given up on the Robson yet. YET.
I would curse my huge shoulders, but they’re really good at carrying heavy grocery bags. 🙂

It’s cold, windy, and snowy in Boston today. At least I have my huge shoulders to keep me warm. 🙂
