So I got the itch to get rid of my mane yesterday, so I did! Gone are about 7 inches, and my head feels so much lighter! I'm interested to see what kind of wet sets I can get from this.
I've also decided to set aside working on the portrait blouse right now. I was getting overly frustrated with some fit issues, that I couldn't seem to fix no matter how much fiddling I did with the pattern. It might just not work for me, but I'm not quite giving up yet. Maybe time will offer some perspective? I am starting one of my recent vintage pattern purchases now though. More to come soon!
