Today I finished a little tea dress I started on Saturday enough to be able to try it on and - I hate it!!
It when together easily and fits fine - it's just frumpy and unflattering!! I thought maybe it was because the skirt was gathered unflatteringly so I took some fabric out of that but it's still not good so I've stuffed it in the back of the cupboard!!
How do you feel when you make something you don't like? I feel as though I have wasted lots of time, but in the same token I learned how to do buttonholes properly (after much trial and error) and it was all good practice.
I might take it out again in a few days and see if I can do anything with it, going to make a frivalous net petticoat now!!
Every girl should have a net petticoat, and even though I mostly live in jeans, joggers and jodhpurs I WANT ONE.
I made a 1950's style dress with a circle skirt that a net petticoat would be perfect with:
I want to make a petticoat like this:
Will let you know how I get on later....
