As you may remember, I made myself a Sorbetto which, although wearable, was somewhat disappointing, and remains at the bottom of the washing basket, waiting for me to get into a hand washing mood.
I decided to give the pattern another chance. I attempted to adjust it to take into account the problems with the general shortness. I took care to do a good job. I used french seams for the first time, and they were a huge success.
And then I stretched the neckline beyond recognition while attaching the bias binding.
At this point I decided to try it on and see if it was worth saving. It was not. This top gives me all the womanly curves of SpongeBob SquarePants. It is now in the bin.
As part of the learning curve that is sewing, I’m going to try and take one thing to remember away from each project. This time:
Take as much care at the end as at the beginning. Stop focussing on the new and shiny things on the horizon.
The picture is entirely unrelated to the post, I know. I just rediscovered it in my photo stream. I found this skunk fabric while fabric shopping in France last summer. I really wanted to buy it, but I just don’t know what occasion calls for a skunk print dress. Any ideas?
