I saw this pattern and was perhaps fooled by the picture. It felt dreamy and summery and I bought it. Soon after I happened upon this ombre purple fabric, it was just a small rem. I thought it would work great with this pattern. I meticulously placed the pieces so that the ombre look wouldn’t be lost. The construction went well and I felt really good about it until I put it on.
I am not impressed. Obviously, it’s a shear and so I had planned on making a shell dress to go under it, but I was so underwhelmed that I’ve abandoned the project to the donation bin.
What can I say? So many things can go wrong in sewing: the fit, the fabric, the construction . . . Sometimes the vision just doesn’t meet the result. I have to remind myself that most good artists rarely display their flops. Until next time!
