My flat often looks like a bunch of angry Belgians threw a trash party. Sometimes the photo corner or the table are the only clean things in my home. Carefully arranged flowers have a general life expectancy of 5 days, but might stay in their vase much longer, drying up. Plus you can generally find at least a shirt and two socks laying somewhere on the floor.
Same with sewing. I present the finished costumes here, but you never get to see the amount of blood, sweat and tears that went into them. And the curses, let's not forget the curses! ;) I know why I refrain from taking work in progress pictures as I'm messy as h*ll, screw up and reconfigure all the time and my seam ripper is my best friend.
I use the wrong fabric for my projects and end up with horrible things like this:
In case you are wondering, this is the other, knotted version of my waterfall to go shirt pattern Simplicty 1716. I tried and I failed. Partly because I can't for the life of me figure out how to knot it without strangling myself, partly because my thick good quality jersey is probably to thick to form a nice knot. Bummer, into the trash it went!
Or look at this beauty:
Although I measured twice and cut once, I somehow ended up with a skirt which is much shorter on one side than the other. I measured; it is a 12cm difference on a floor length skirt. How can that happen? No idea! Especially after years of sewing experience... I'm now onto repairing it by moving the shorter part down!
How is your sewing going? Did you have any major meltdowns lately? Or is everything running smoothly?
