I traced the pattern late at night, then realised I didn't have enough fabric to cut it, so I had to use a plan b fabric.
It's a silky scarf thing I brought from Rome for five euros, I actually used to wear it a lot until the edged started fraying.
Next I realised I didn't have enough of fabric a for the a contrast frill, or fabric b, or c for that matter. Enter fabric d!
I cut my pattern peices and I wasn't convinced, I sewed the darts and definitely wasn't convinced. Two French seams later and I started to think it looked a lil hideous.
At this point I gave up, my frill was too thick, my material was too sheer and couldn't support it (and it's doing some weird sticking out at the back!) I have weird stripes across the body! It's a hot mess!
So I took if off my mannequin and stuffed it in draw! I'll deal with it another day! Until then I'd rather sew something pretty!
