Q&A with ChrissyJ

BeeGreiner asked:
good job!! I hope mine looks as nice as yours...are you fitting yourself? I'd love to see your fashion fabric.
ChrissyJ answered:
Thanks! I am trying to do all the fitting alone, with only occasionally help from my husband, who is afraid of pins. The fashion fabric is kind of boring - a light grey tropical weight wool. When this is done, I might try looking for a nice cotton print to do a more casual version with the full skirt.
LauraHoo asked:
Great job on your fitting! I'm also doing mine in a tropical weight wool (raspberry colored). Are you doing sleeves? I'm going for the 3/4 length sleeve.
ChrissyJ answered:
No, I'm doing sleeveless. I think it will be a good basic to pair with different jackets, shawls, etc.
