Lisette. You know I love her. You know I do. Easy, pretty, fun. What’s not to love? There we were all laughing and joking together and I was at the cool table and then just like that- you treated me like I was carrying a Prada knock-off and sent me to sit with the un-cool kids. Story of my life.
But what did I do? I cut you out, following all markings and whatnot. I lovingly pre-washed your fabric, I started and all was going great- it felt like a 2 hour pattern.
I’ve returned in my mind to the scene of the crime numerous times. Was I distracted while cutting?
Somehow I ended up with one sleeve that fit perfectly into the facing and one that was about 2 inches too big. Weird!
Admittedly, I can have my focus pulled while working on a project- the Sewing area is not really mine, I lease it from the animals……
This is the finished product- still wearable, but frustrating. How does one cut out 4 sleeve pieces and have one mystically grow overnight? It is bizarre. I did feel good about my problem solving abilities- I took it apart, recut and only lost about 45 minutes. But I’m not done whining- would you imagine I ever stop? Surely not.
Why, Anne- why is this side not graced with the tiny bow? What are you hiding??? I’m hiding the grossly darned area that I cut a tiny hole into while trimming. Yes, after all that recovery, I cut a whole in it. Oh, the sartorial Gods were giggling all afternoon. Finished product was still very cute- I’ll try this again in an isolation booth sometime soon. The fabric was a freeby bundle from Fabricmart- so I win, really and Mr B thinks it’s cute. Altho- this symmetrical dork mind can’t handle the single bow. Get over it! I ran out of ribbon after I trimmed the sleeves- the bow was a last-minute save!
Now I’m not saying that any of this was anyone but myselfs fault, but today, while I cut out a dress, someone will be visiting the yard!
