I actually didn’t make enough in 2013 to have 5… which is a positive thing until I start remembering the actual misses of 2013 for me!
The Colette Laurel Dress – I made this tunic shift dress thing and I made it too Effing small hence un petit desastre. I occasionally cram myself into the floral number but have not worn the black & white version as I still haven’t hemmed it… Completely unmotivated to finish it.
Blue floral corset – despite being really happy with my pattern matching, it all comes down to fit. A few weight fluctuations between drafting the corset and making it up and the fit sucks… Such a shame.
My Mum’s tunic coat dress thing – from a Burda Pattern – I’m not keen and did a rubbish job on the inside seams. I guess my mum likes it but I know it’s not my best effort.
My endless list of UFO’s – including my friend’s corset and the box of shame. Named so because I found a box big enough to put all of my UFO’s in and then promptly hid it under my bed. And that darn corset, still a year in the making. I lost enthusiasm after an incident involving silk, the over eager use of fray-stop and an indelible stain. Haven’t had the heart to cut out another pattern piece to be honest.
Oh, look, another UFO…. (This is supposed to be a wearable toile of Papercut Patterns’ Sylphide Blouse)
