Are you ready to read about what never got worn? Or never even made it to the blog? It’s time to tell all!
My attempt to sew a Simplicity pattern left me frustrated with the sizing… and the plunging neckline requires a cami which throws the whole thing off for me. Not to fear, though – I found some scraps, so next summer I’ll fill in the neckline a bit and see how I like it!
I really liked this SBCC Flora dress when I made it… but once fall rolled around, I realised it is SHORT! I’ve tried it on with leggings but it doesn’t feel right… so it might just become a t-shirt at some point. I’m not loving drapey styles like this or my Ebony dresses the way I used to, so that might be part of the issue.
This one breaks my heart! I love this scuba cocoon dress, but I wore it for a long day of walking around with my pale pink Berlin coat over top, and now the scuba is badly pilled! I don’t know if it’s the wool fibres getting into the scuba, or the scuba balling up, but it’s basically unwearable. Boohoo!
But truly, the biggest fail of my year was…
…getting a concussion and missing 2 months or work and sewing! SERIOUSLY! Who know being rear-ended could mess up so much for so long. I am very, very grateful for all the support, advice and pep talks you have all given me online during my recovery. It’s made sitting at home all day feel much less lonely! I’m starting to recover now, so fingers crossed I’m back to normal life soon!
What were your big misses this year? Any really hilarious big ones, or just little learning opportunities along the way? I’ve got to remember to take more pictures of my fugtastic muslins when I sew, because most of my ugliest sewing never makes it to the blog!
