In theory, I just love Vogue 8901. But I can hear it- it’s noisy, rustly, distracting. I feel like I should be strapped to a mast and helping argyle Vikings make it to port.
#4 is a phantom. Its Vogue 1343 and when you see ‘recommend with modifications‘ on it’s only reviews on Pattern Review- translate that in your heads to ‘remake using another pattern’ and walk away. Even the model looks disgusted. We had a little Vogue funeral by the curb for the remains.
Ok, more meh ahead!
Sometimes bad ideas come in very fluffy packages. This was a skrimp to get enough fabric, too clingy of a choice and just ungainly. I was flipping past that hanger so quickly in the closet that I think the top thought it lived on a dry cleaners conveyor belt. Nope. Just nope.
I’m just not comfortable with a fitted top and bottom in a style. Newlook 6000 is a pretty frock, but I felt really exposed in it. Odd, right? I know you all must think the bunnies are scared of the dark, since I almost always let them out of the tops I make, but this felt too revealing!
Well, I’m not so sad over this. The list took a long time- I was so glad my sucky group wasn’t as massive as the things I’ve worn and enjoyed. Is this the part where I’m supposed to say that I learned something- I did. I’m getting better with knowing whats right for me and incorporating skills and details I want to try into appropriate shapes for me. I’ve sewn less wadders this year. Phew!
Oh, and don’t forget:
Multiple badges to fit your style are forthcoming!
