When I talked about the pretty fabric and the waterfall shirt I originally planned, I didn't tell you I made a major mistake. I cut the front piece not on the fold but in two pieces. I know, that is way stupid. The middle seam would look stupid and also keep the fabric from forming a pretty waterfall. For a minute or two I was furious with myself. But since the fabric was cut already, There was no chance to stick with my original plan. Instead, I improvised... (maybe I should rename this blog into "... and then I improvised"?)
As you can see, I was not able to cut everything from the tie dye fabric, but I think the black jersey doesn't look half bad. What do you say?
I added a black neckband (again fake bias) and finished the sleeves with tie dye fabrics, to repeat the fabrics on different positions in the garment:
Although I didn't make my original waterfall shirt, I still ended up with a wearable pretty shirt. And I will make the waterfall shirt from another fabric, probably black. Nothing like readjusting the crown and walking on after a little slip and fall!
