"If it's Pink or Sparkly Yes I Want IT!"
Okay soooooooooooo what had happened was.............
Hello sewing loves I'm back and in serious need of a weekend do over! Yes you heard right I need a do over because I didn't accomplish what I set out to do. While I could blame it all on my husband for enticing me with furniture shopping and lunch Saturday and Sunday I won't. The truth is I was so frustrated with the sewing brain fart I was experiencing that I ran out of that house without a second guess when he suggested that we hang out!
You see what had happened was................ I could not for the life of me figure out how I was going to finish the lining and get the nice clean look I wanted based on the way I draped the pattern. Now when I initially draped the pattern, I had it all worked out in my head and I knew exactly how to make it all happen. Unfortunately when it came time to line it cleanly with no hemlines (because of my fabric choice) I drew a complete BLANK! I was up until 2:30 am working trying to remember how I came up with this crazy idea and why it wasn't working out! I mean literally this top is not hard it should have been knocked out in no time! But noooooooooooooo not me I was rushing not paying attention and didn't realize what I did wrong until the very next day! UGH Yes I woke up with and the lightbulb was shining brightly above my head like DUHHHH!
Yes I GOT IT! I hopped up out of bed went into my studio and made this quick draft to make sure I really did have it! LOL Yes I finally worked it out and I know where I'm going with this thing. Now I'm ready for the second go round and this time no brain farts allowed! I did make a few more adjustments to the pattern including the fabric I'm going to use so stay tuned for all that. If the next go at it doesn't make me absolutely crazy I will add this to my draping course and share how you can make your very own one shoulder top with cape very soon. In the meantime here are a few quick pics and a short little video to show what the finished product should look like when it's all said and done. Keep in mind this is just the rough draft, the final product will not have hemlines and the fabric will be completely different. SOOOO that's it for today loves, until next time have a fabulous day and stay tuned for more of this ONE SHOULDER SAGA! LOL
