- I am a mother, a new grandmother, and a teacher. But whatever happens in my life, I keep sewing. I have worked as a political communicator and now as a teacher in my formal life. I have also written extensively on sewing. I have been a frequent contributor and contributing editor of Threads magazine and I write a monthly humour/sewing column for the Australian magazine Dressmaking with Stitches. My first book Sew.. the garment-making book of knowledge will be published in May 2018 and is available for pre-order from Amazonhttps://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=barbara+emodi&rh=i%3Aaps%2Ck%3Abarbara+emodi

McCalls 6241 on me
Tonight I dragged my husband away from the stove and had him take a picture of me in this top so you could see the issue with the neckline. Also it's always nicer to see a pattern on the wearee I think.
I am definitely going to try again with a faced neckline.
Again, as usual, my weekend hair is pretty frizzy, but I may also be frazzled by being in the kitchen when my husband was in heavy pizza production. He's been cooking them in the oven at the self-clean temperature where it only takes 2 minutes each to cook a really nice pizza. Good for him when he is doing mass cooking.
I would never do such a crazy thing but he says it is a piece of cake as long as you take out those two screws from the door. Don't ask, I'm too smart to.
Also this is a lots of ease pattern, I made a 12 in this one and I haven't been a 12 since I was 12.
OK off to clean up after the cook.
