A few weeks ago, I showed you these capris.
These are filed under “Oops Files” because they were planned as one thing (pants) and turned into something else (capris). The “oops” factor was that I made them too short. They are fine as capris – but not what I had planned.
Today, in the Oops Files, I present this little sheath with sequin bodice and ruffle trim.
It’s a cute dress and it looks great on our doll. It’s not going to fall apart or anything, but there are definitely a couple of “oops” here.
First, what I like about the dress. I like that it’s a great fit and very easy to put on and take off. I love the sequin bodice.
So, where’s the “oops” factor you say?
First of all, it was supposed to be a bubble dress. It has a bubble hem but I didn’t use near enough fabric to make it actually “bubble”. So, now it just kind of looks like there’s something wrong with the hem – if you really look.
Second, the back. I’m not sure how I did it, but somehow in sewing on the Velcro the back got all wonky on me.
Especially at the bottom.
ARGHHGHH!!!! But as many of us know, we learn so much from our mistakes. So, hopefully, I won’ make pants too short again, I’ll use the right amount of fabric next time, and I’ll figure out how to get the closure to look better while still functioning.
I’m not too embarrassed to share my mistakes! How about you?
