I have had a few sewing successes though, notably this.
So I've had this dress since I was probably in elementary school. The one time I wore it my brother told me it looked like an old lady dress. And to be honest it's never fit me right. But I really love the fabric so I just couldn't part with it. And I finally decided that the easiest thing I could do is make it into a blouse. (Well the easiest thing that would result in me being able to wear it. The easiest thing would have been to let it sit for ages and gaze longingly upon it from time to time.) So I got to work. I pinned a straight line and stitched it right across. It was easy. Too easy. After trying it on, I realized why.
|So yeah, those two sides are supposed to be the same length. Whoops.|
|Tada! It's all cute and fitted because there's strings that tie in the back, or in the front. That's what I call options.|
Oh and in case you were wondering, the shirt I'm wearing underneath the blouse is this awesome black tee shirt that I thrifted from Goodwill as a wee freshman in college. It's got a robot who looks kind of like a fatter shorter Iron Man and he's plucking the petals from a daisy.
