I cut out Burda 8053 today. I started with the sheer overlay part of the skirt first, because if this wasn’t going to turn out right, I was just going to scrap the whole skirt.
I think that I was in a bit of a hurry, because the overlay was cut a little wonkey – alright, a lot wonkey in parts. Since I’ve got so much stretch projects lined up, I thought that I had better invest in some Woolly Nylon. I picked up two spool and used them in the lower loopers of my serger and set it to make a rolled hem. I can’t believe how amazing this thread is! It has so much stretch and makes a lovely rolled hem – I do have a few ‘pokies’ but I can fill these small parts in with a fabric marker and no one will be the wiser. I like this thread so much, I put a bid in on Ebay for so more. I’m sure that I will lose, but one can dream.
So, besides experimenting with Woolly Nylon, I’m also trying out some of that Jergens Natural Glow moisturizer. I got both the body and face versions in the lightest color. So we’ll see if I look a bit more summery in a week. In the meantime, I stink. I smell like I’m using a self tanner. I looked on the Jergens site and they compare the smell to a day at the beach:
As the moisturizer works to darken the skin, some people may develop an unfamiliar smell on their skin, which is a part of the skin darkening process. Some people have told us that it smells like they have spent a day at the beach, and their skin smells warm & toasty. The fragrance in JergensÂ® natural glow FACE and Daily Moisturizer masks the smell for many of the consumers we tested on, but unfortunately, the smell is different from person to person and for a small group of consumers, they still find the smell comes through the fragrance.
I think I smell like burning chicken skin stuffed with flowers. Humm, now I’m getting hungry…….
