The Go Getter
Wasn’t the opening ceremony the best thing ever? I just loved every moment of it. I thought Danny Boyle did a superb job. The portrayal of the Industrial Revolution I thought was just brilliant, the music era flash-through had me cheering, the lighting up of the cauldron put a lump in my throat. It. was. amazing! This outfit, not so, well, it is what it is.
Ladies I am a sporadic exerciser when it comes to any kind of sport, when this body needs some help I’ll go for a jog or do laps around my local bike path to get fit that’s about it for me, sport! I’m not big on at all. When I was in high school I was a decent long distant runner, I have some trophies in a box in the garage I do. I don’t mind jogging. Tennis! as depicted in these photo’s would be my favourite sport to watch on TV ”however”, to play… oh-so-t e r r i b l e.
Admittedly I shuddered at the thought of doing this challenge I didn’t get excited about it at all. My joggers are so old and dirty I didn’t want them put anywhere near a photo so I wore my boots— not the most practical but looking at Serena’s boots I thought why not.
I spotted this pattern on the internets and said lets just go with that. New Look Pattern 6207 for the pattern pieces, flaring each panel as I cut, serged princess seams, pressed them down flat, placed in the centre back zip and modified the neckline to suit the picture. I picked up some of this great aboriginal printed cotton to highlight the neckline and tennis racket cover—a wonderful representation of our lucky country methinks. I even made some bloomers which I forgot to shoot, they’re rockin, my hubby says they’re dead sexy. NOT! hehe. The tennis racket I thrifted for $1. Score! Above I’m just waiting for the umpire to make a decision on whether the ball was in or not, talk about taking ones time hey!?
Y E S! she’s in!
and the crowd goes wild… haaaaaa!….Game, Set, and Match!
