Frustration

Jacket with collar
Sleeve Front - that fits
The front – sorry for the crummy pic.
The sleeve is just basted in to check how
well it fits in the armhole.

I had to stay home with Pulguito. He had a fever of 102F and threw up this morning. I feel terrible now. I think I might have it. Pulguito seems to be fine.

I feel terrible. I want to sleep. My head hurts, and I have no energy. I felt fine this morning.

When I finally got enough energy to do a bit of sewing, I didn’t have any fun! It was time to ease the sleeves into the jacket. I hate that. Well, I used to hate it. I never could get the sleeve in smoothly. Practice makes perfect, I suppose. But I still dread it.

Before I run the ease line on the sleeve cap, I pin the sleeve into the armhole just to check things. The back of the sleeve seems long.

Well, I’m an optimist, so I go over to the sewing machine and run my ease line. I gather up the sleeve cap and pin it into the armhole again. The front goes in great, but not the back.

Sleeve Back - too much sleeve
The back

    Hmm, wonder if you’d be interested in watching my grandmother do this the next time we’re in SF? Would that help?
