I realized today that I haven’t posted in 2 weeks! That’s not going to further my goal of getting more readers!
I’ll start with my possible wadder from last weekend, Butterick 5318:
I like to call this the “52 pleat dress.” Between the front waist and sleeves, there are 52 pleats! While I figured if I marked them and took my time, it would be fine, what I failed to recognize was that 52 pleats means a lot of room for error. You’ll see the results of that in the photo below.
Note the front waist. Yep, it’s pinned, not sewn. That’s because it’s way too big for the skirt section it’s supposed to be attached to. In addition, I need to find out how not to stretch out a neckline of a knit garment!! This is getting really old. I tried to salvage it with clear elastic, but it doesn’t look so hot.
So, despite its rating as easy, I’ve have to disagree.
