Sometimes you’re the windshield, sometimes you’re the bug…


Simplicity 2369 

This dress had problems from the start…


The chosen fabric, while really pretty, was a bit too beefy.  I couldn’t get the correct setting on the serger, so every seam is a too-thick wavy mess.

I didn’t like the way it fit through the back either.

Then, while making the final seam finish, this happened…



I put it aside yesterday and taped together a new pattern, the StyleArc Tessa Top.


I have some linen from my stash, so we’ll see how this one goes.  When you get ready to put together one of these downloadable patterns, make sure you have a few extra rolls of tape handy.

  1. Oh!! Such a shame – and so close to the finish line! Is there no way to salvage it? Or the fabric? BTW, I love the title of your post. So true, so true.

  2. Oh my! That would just drive me mad! Good for you though, continuing on.
