The pocket flap is inserted between the welts and the pocket bag is sewn.
The pattern shows one pocket, but I decided to make two. I thought it looked whopsided on me.
Reason 1: Drinking Red Wine with fried foods may counter act the effect of the fat attack. Studies find that people who drink wine daily have lower body mass than those who indulge occasionally; moderate wine drinkers have narrower waists and less abdominal fat than people who drink liquor. There is a two for one on your resolutions.
Reason 2: Cancer runs in your family? Resveratrol (antioxidant) helps prevent cancer by limiting tumor growth. Red wine is high in flavonoids (a type of polyphenol), which are antioxidants. One of the most studied antioxidants is resveratrol, which comes from grape skins and seeds. Antioxidants help prevent certain molecules, known as free radicals, from damaging cells.
Reason 3: Wine drinkers less likely to get common cold. An investigation revealed that men and women who drank more than 14 glasses of wine each week had a 40 percent reduction in colds compared with people who drank no alcohol. The association was stronger for red wine and the same findings were not true for people consuming other alcoholic beverages, the report indicates. On average, the men had 1.1 colds per person per year in that time, while women averaged 1.7 colds per person per year. Bottoms ups!
Reason 4: Wine can be expensive if you are cutting down on your spending this year. The Wine Cellar we have wines to fit everyone's budget & a monthly Newsletter with discounts. Also if you buy in bulk you save an additional five to ten percent on the already marked down items.
Reason 5: Too many calories in alcoholic beverages? It is all about portion control and moderation. Red wine 3.5oz has approximately 74 calories. White wine 3.5oz has approximately 70 calories.
Reason 6: Forgetful? Wine could preserve your memory. When researchers gave memory quizzes to women in their 70s, those who drank one glass of wine or more every day scored much better than those who drank less or not at all.
Reason 7: Researchers have found that men who drink an average of four to seven glasses of red wine per week are only 52 percent as likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer as those who do not drink red wine, reports the June 2007 issue of Harvard Men's Health Watch. Men won't need another reason.
Reason 8: Australian researchers recently compared women with ovarian cancer and cancer-free women; they found that roughly one glass of wine a day seemed to reduce the risk of the disease by as much as 50 percent.
Reason 9: Would you rather eat spinach once daily or drink a glass of wine? On average, women who drink moderately seem to have higher bone mass than abstainers. Alcohol appears to boost estrogen levels; the hormone seems to slow the body's destruction of old bone more than it slows the production of new bone.
Reason 10: And most importantly, wine is delicious! How could you live without it? Pair it with a meal, loved one or a night alone because nothing makes you feel as fine as Wine!
Have a fabulous Sunday!
Erica - thanks for the great review. I, along with the poster Meg, would love to know how you carve out time for sewing and a busy life? If you have any secrets you can share, this would be wonderful! Maybe an article for Pattern Review or even one of your blog entries. I work full time in HR and unfortunately find that time is "not by own" even when I come home in the evenings - and have other demands too. There has to be a better way to maximize time and you do a great job at. : ) Thanks!!!!!!!
cou·ture (kü-ˈtu̇r), noun - the business of designing and producing fashionable, high quality, custom-made clothing.Couture sewing is all about the *custom* fit and finishing details. Honestly, do you think you're going to get that at F21??? You're not going to get "couture" at Saks, Neimans, Nordstroms or Barneys. You get "couture" from a custom dressmaker or a designer. Couture does not come "off the rack". This is a term that's thrown around very loosely... too loosely.
