Sewing Blunders can lead to creative process
A while back I decided to make a sleeveless blouse to go with some brown walking shorts I had made. I figured I would whip this baby out in two days- WRONG. I had major fitting issues that I think I figured out but it took some time. I also thought the fabric was a checked cotton. Nope it was polyester and it frayed like mad. I also ended cutting a wee bit too small size for myself. It was bigger in the shoulders and armholes but I still needed more room in the bust dart area. I find pattern fitting so tedious so I postponed the final fitting until I got my Duct tape twin made; Duck tape Dorthy to the rescue.
