V1285 Update & What I Wore

So I posted on my FB that I was making V1285 so this weekend I cut out the pattern and my fabric and because I was working with a knit  I didn't bother to make a muslin, that was a mistake because I have a small upper body and I should have known after making a million Vogue patterns that I needed to fit the top mock wrap but I was being lazy!

After I cut my fabric and started to sew it together I tried on the top portion of the dress and HATED it, let me tell you why....the bands are too wide for my body so I needed to have trimmed a good 7/8" the problem was that I had already trimmed the excess on the bands and neck edge so I couldn't just remove them, trim and reattached because I had already chopped of the SA, lol! dumb, dumb, dumb.

Anyway I was so irritated with myself by then that I just didn't want to bother any longer and I didn't have enough fabric to re-cut the bodice so I chucked it in the corner and went to bed MAD.AS.HELL, I guess I will try again with another fabric :-(

What I Wore...

F21 Jeans
H&M Cape
F21 Leopard Bag

  1. Super chic! I love that bag with the cape.
    I know how you feel. I recently had a project not work out. I hate wasting fabric. So my failed project is in a plastic grocery bag right now. I'll probably just use that fabric for a bag lining or something.
