As I was snapping this picture Sweet Pea walked by and said…
Sweet Pea: “Whatcha taking a pictures of?”
Me: “A dress that I’m seam ripping.”
Sweat Pea: “Why would someone want to see a picture of that?”
Well, the point of this pictures is to show you (and me, ha) that making something takes time. And often it involves mistakes. This one was just a mistake in style for me. I sewed the washi dress with the expansion pack (poofy shouldered sleeves, a neck tie), things that ended up just not looking good on me. (This style has looked good on so many other sewists out there, it just doesn’t work on my broad swimming shoulders! I’ve showed you a picture of me before in poofy sleeves…it just doesn’t work!) So this dress sat, and sat, and sat next to my sewing machine for months. This week I am finally ripping those sleeves off to put cap sleeves on. And I’ve removed the front tie and I’m replacing it with a simple facing (all part of the washi pattern).
Made any mistakes lately? Working on anything new?
