Well, here it is….the sister-of-the-groom outfit from hell. This dress is better than the first, of course, but you can see that it still has some issues with the fit.
And then there’s this wrap that I thought I finished tonight…
I used the Weekend Designer wrap pattern. But it does NOT work with the velvet at all. Too floppy despite my interfacing, too bulky, too BAD looking. So I guess I’m going to have to take some time tomorrow and try to salvage this into a capelet or something. Seriously…why do I even try to work with nice fabrics?
I guess this outfit is just jinxed or something…even my shoes have been an issue. I have an unusual size due to my unusually wide feet, and so I mail-ordered the shoes almost two months ago. Got them fine, the width was fine, but the shoes were cramping my toes so I sent them back. And then didn’t hear a thing about them until a couple days ago, when I emailed them to find out the status of the order. The shoes are out of stock. So now I have until Saturday to find a pair around here, and probably the only day I’ll actually have time to look is Wednesday. Aaargh.
