Hello Refashion Co-op. I thought I could put this fun blouse together with this simple sweater. I thought it would be fairly simple project. It was a mess.
It started out well. I basted the collar onto the sweater and then went over it with my machine so it would be really secure. I love the fluffy collar. I am glad I didn't mess it up.
The problem came when I attached the shirt to the bottom of the sweater. I had it all pinned together, I thought that would keep the sweater from stretching as I sewed. It stretched and turned into a tutu of some kind. It looked awful and awkward. It was like a huge ruffle over my backside. That wasn't a good look for me.
I got mad and I cut the whole thing off. (Temper, temper.) It was time for a new plan.
I added this trim to cover the rough cut I made and add a bit of length.
The new trim is much better. It lays (almost) flat and I can wear this sweater in public with out a huge awkward ruffle on my backside.
