I had a pretty bad sewing fail this last week.
There were many reasons for this.
I hate navy.
But I love free.
Even if fabric is free, it doesn't make up for it being navy.
Swiss dots couldn't even make up for it.
It wasn't really the fabric's fault though, it was the princess seams.
I have heard many times how princess seams are so nice for the well endowed.
Princess seams are so easy to fit.
Blah. Blah. Blah.
I have never liked them and this confirms why.
There is a huge difference between fitting and flattering.
This thing fit so well it was obscene.
It's as if I had rented a billboard.
The gaping at the front of the armhole was pretty bad too.
Then I get the new JoAnn's mailer and there the b**ch is.
Not the model wearing it, the pattern.
What I hated the most about it was how it wasted so much time.
I ripped it apart.
It felt good!
I removed the excellent trim before I threw it away.
The one good thing: I bought and used silk basting thread for the first time.
What a joy!
