What a frustrating sewing day!


These straps took me so long to complete today. I am not sure how many times I had to unpick the rolled hem as it just wouldn't work. Anyway finally got them completed and now I think they look too wide for the top, not really in proportion???
They are not sewn in yet as Ellyse is in FDC so I can't measure them.

To make it even less professional looking, the cotton I bought this morning was just a little too light for the fabric and you can see my very uneven sewing for the elastic.

Oh well, I am sure people won't look too closely! As I said yesterday, I am loving the ric rac. I actually got this for the skirt, but couldn't resist using it!

Anyway after a frustrating day I am happy with the outcome and can't wait to try it on Ellyse.

I agree with Andrea, people will be too impressed that you made it to look too closely.

Don't you hate it when you run out of a favourite fabric. I think that's why I have such a hard time cutting into some things, I just dread not having them anymore iykwim. Silly I know as it's much nicer to have them used and being looked at rather than stashed away in the cupboard.
