Spent yesterday patterning Thomas’ doublet. FAIL. Scaled up the Tudor Tailor version using the very last scraps of my tracing paper.
When I could finally try the muslin on the ever-resistant Thomas, omg did it not fit. UGH. Somehow I was able to scale up and resize the pants pattern with no issues, but totally could not replicate that success with the doublet. Hah, and I thought the doublet would be the easier of the two! Back to the drawing board, literally.
This morning, I re-drafted the doublet pattern. I’ll sew up the muslin, but I realized I won’t be able to fit Thomas till, geez, don’t know when. Today is the Olympics gold-medal hockey game, then he plays hockey, then it’s the closing ceremony — too many distractions. He works very late on Monday due to a filming gig (in fact, I need to figure out a ride home from work!). I think he has another gig on Tuesday, not sure, and then he plays hockey Wednesday night. Thursday night, we have a date planned. Geez, uh, Friday fitting?
