You’d think that after sewing for 10 years that I’d either know how to match a pattern with the appropriate fabric or follow the recommendations on the envelope. Nope, I guess I like wasting time and money. Case in point:
Looks cute on Saffron, doesn’t it? You wouldn’t believe how hard it was just to get it onto her! Then I pulled a shoulder muscle getting it onto my body! I used this ponte de roma knit that doesn’t have enough stretch to work for such a structured dress. And for some reason I thought there were separate pieces for C/D cups so it’d fit in the bust. (I’d cut the pattern pieces a couple weeks ago and didn’t cut the fabric till today.) Nope, I’m delusional. Fabric with little give, combined with C cup boobs in a B cup dress does not make for a well fitting dress. And to top it all off, all that bulk at the waist makes my body look like a rectangle. Ugh. Hopefully someone at Goodwill will be very happy.
P.S. If you’re a fan of Juicy Pear flavored Jelly Bellies, check your Wal-Mart for jello snacks in Juicy Pear flavor! I nearly peed myself! They also have tangerine and very cherry.
