I sincerely doubt it, because none of my other clothes have turned into tents. But this is the third time I've ripped the seams out of the dress because it's still too damn big
I'm so frustrated. I made a muslin, I've been trying it on as I go, I get to the point where I'm almost done and I try it on--this time the back droops funny, causing the shoulders to fall off. I've gone through almost a whole spool of thread--I'll be able to work on a little more tonight and tomorrow I'll need to make a trip to Joann's.
Part of it is my huge fear that I'll make it too small, so I cut generous seam allowances. But geez--you'd think I'd have it right by now! And I'm still worried I'm going to take it in too much. At least I haven't gotten to the level of aggravation where I just cut it up, the way I did a pair of pants I was trying to make for Miranda years ago...this linen's too expensive, it's holding my anger in check, I guess. And it's something I can wear year round, so even if it's September by the time I finish it, I'll be able to wear it.
Linen continues to be 60% off at Joann's, until June 28th. If I really screw it up, replacing the fabric won't be so bad.
