You know the feeling when you are about to cut up your favourite fabric – the “Oh boy, I hope this works” feeling. Then you take a deep breath and go for it. I finished the Kimono dress in that fabulous silk. But I don’t like it… OH NOOOO!!!
Photos will follow, once I can force myself to get daughter no 1 to take some for me. I don’t quite know what went wrong – the pattern doesn’t go with the shape, I hate the waistband area… So for now I will pop it back in the cupboard and get on finishing the purple georgette blouse which, fingers crossed, seems to be working out better.
I have learn one thing though – I do NOT look like the figure in the sketch!! I will have to make some templates that are more my shape than a tall skinny minny! Perhaps that will help me to be more realistic! I saw a pin on Pinterest a while ago… and I think this sums up my predicament perfectly, although it isn’t always the camera and the mirror who disagree, it’s me and the mirror/camera!
One thought on “When a plan doesn’t quite work out”
That happened with me with my trench coat! I love it on my dress dummy but I hate it on me 😦 and I was sure it would me amazing – I’ll share some photos eventually…
I love your picture above, it’s so true! Silly camera/mirror/brain conflict
