It Pains Me

20140321-180452.jpgHere’s the thing. I didnt even put the buttons on this before I tossed it. Dont get me wrong, I learned a ton (welted pockets, topstitching etc) Never took on something so complicated – with so much construction. Forty pieces in all.

So what’s the problem? The fabric! The demin is way to heavy and stiff. It was free so I used it as a muslin to see if I was a med or lrg.

Next time, if there is one, my fabric will be much lighter and with a bit of stretch. The feeling I have right now is Im tired of this pattern and process involved. It will be a while and I am onto sewing other things.

This is the first time I have abandoned something at the muslin stage? How about you?

At least I know my size now!

  1. We have all had to abandon a project for one reason or another. I have a few in my ‘what the hell was I thinking’ box. Yours looks so nice.. all that hard work, perhaps if you send it through the washer and dryer every time you do a load over the next month or so you can eventually soften it up enough that you could wear it. But no matter what the lessons learned it priceless.
