You know that phrase, "One step forward, two steps back?" I did that this weekend. Actually, it was more like "One step forward, and stumble."
What did I do? I cut two of one piece right-side up, rather than two mirror images. Somehow it's much more dramatic when it's for a garment than it is when I make this mistake while quilting. Maybe it's because the pieces are bigger and there's nap involved.
yep. A nap. That's what I wanted when I realized my mistake.
Maybe there's enough fabric left? Nope. Not on this scrap.
At least the dress went together without incident. I added the gold after I looked for a Disney comparison. The dress made with the pattern directions were just a bit too ordinary for a princess. I think the gold takes it from homemade to custom tailored, don't you?
