What a fun and liberating week this has been! Yes, I make mistakes, but guess what? I'm still pushing forward! So here is Friday's fail:
I bought this shirt (a Tommy Hilfiger shirt) at Goodwill. I loved the ruffles, and thought they would make a cute dress for my daughter.
It was my first attempt at adding sleeves to something. While I think I did okay, I did realize I made them a bit...awkward. Basically, my daughter had trouble bending her arms. And I sewed them too small, so they were really tight. :) Oh well. I still have to stitch-rip the sleeves off, then make it a tank dress. And fail #2 for the dress - there is nothing behind the buttons, but there is a gap. So as to keep my cutie pie modest, I'm going to just add a white square of fabric behind the buttons so no skin shows.
Ah, the joys of failure ;) I will post a picture of the revised and renewed dress on Monday, after I work on it this weekend.
Have a fabulous day everyone, and an even better weekend!
