I had sewing failures two in a roll, what a bummer!!!
Dont ask me what I was smoking when I made this — preggers are not allowed to be high. Besides the ugly ruffling, which i could technically remove and replace with a double layer fabric, the whole thing just looks weird on me. The only sad thing is that its super duper comfortable, made from bamboo knit… I feel very sad about tossing it like that.
Burda 2010/03 spring coat. I had been wanting to make up a Raglan sleeved coat for a year now, since I dont have any in my closet. This pattern seemed pretty perfect for it. Unfortunately I had the mishap of choosing a polyester coating material, which seems pretty awesome since it was very soft and drapery, what I thought would work well with this kind of coat. However, it is a pain to sew as it slips around, and no matter how much I pressed it, it will not un-wrinkle >( The whole look is just very saggy. The pattern itself seems to fit fine, except that there’s a little too much overlap in the front, making it feel more like a peacoat front than a single button row front. Its a bummer as I had lined it nicely.
I will not give up on my goal of having a Raglan sleeve coat or jacket this year. I am looking for a mustard wool to make something like this from Antro
So far the only thing I can find online is mustard wool from Mood for $18/yard. There’s shetland wool from fabric mart for 13/yard that comes in a varieties of colors, but shetland wool has a very loose weave, which is a little more light weight than i’d like for a coat or jacket. It also is slightly scratchy, which I dont think baby Kaylee would appreciate so much when I carry her around. Dont you wish there’s more fun wool out there?
