after coming to terms with the reality of my never being able to fit into a shirt I got at urban outfitters several years ago, I finally took the scissors to it and made something useful out of it. looking at the scraps on the table at the end, I decided they would make cute flowers, so I hand sewed them together and put them on the back.
this project sparked off another epic battle between me and my (sometimes) loathsome machine. it has something against knits; a sentiment I don't share. there was also a recurrence of this weird thread tension issue that happens sometimes. no matter what I do or what I adjust, it just comes out all wonky and puckered, and it was even gathering my fabric, which was not something that pleased me as I was trying to work with a stretchy material.
I'm not sure if this is a shirt or a dress since I added a little butt flap with the hem of the original shirt to add length. I'm pretty sure this will actually fit Clover as a shirt if I try it on her.
pizzazz!!! I loved the snap front too much not to use it
how wonderful is ruching? it adds such a cute little detail with minimal effort. here begins my ruching phase.
