|My nickname as a child was|
|Cute, huh? Look at the lace.|
|This really is a great pattern!|
Unfortunately, even cutting a small, and altering for petite, it was too big. I mean, really BIG. I cut off even more from the hems (which run around all pieces from shoulder to hip), swallowed my pride, and began hemming. This step took all morning. It's a looooong hem.
So, here is what I have so far. It is okay, I like the idea of it, but this sewing experience has soured it for me right now. I need to complete the vents and the sleeve hems, and find some way to adjust the left shoulder where I have 1-2 inches of extra tunic. I could hang regalia off the damn shoulder.
Will I finish this and wear it? Yes. Will I try again? Let's ask that 4 year old.
