Documenting my sewing adventures, and the ins and outs of learning to adjust patterns for a perfect fit.

Abstract Art How I LOVE thee Simplicity 8383

Happy Tuesday

So you know how you have that project that just doesn't go as plan. Last summer I had this beautiful fabric, I had picked up from Fabric Mart. I knew I wanted something that flows and long. So I tried this Butterick pattern, it was horrible. Butterick 6051, I think my attempt to mix views is where I went wrong.

So I acknowledge the fail project, and saved the fabric to unpick. I knew the skirt I would be able to use to make something that didn't need a lot of fabric. Someone posted Simplicity 8383 on Instagram and I was in loved, so I went to unpicking. I was able to use the skirt to cut all the pieces but the sleeves. So I cut that out of some white ity knit I had here. I absolutely love the dress, and cant wear to wear it. 

Talk about salvaging fabric! I don't really worry about failed projects to much because I will salvage the fabric I can and move right along. 


So from a mishap to a YAAYY

  1. Cute. Cute. Cute!! Great save. I never try to repurpose fabric. I may need to watch for opportunities to do so!
