I fought the Crepe & the Crepe won.....


Just keep sewing, just keep sewing, just keep sewing, sewing, sewing.....

Well, I put the Crepe in a ziplock yesterday. We need a break. It's been slow going, and I finally just decided that I'm not enjoying the process. It has nothing to do with the pattern, or the fabric this time. It's me.

I can't seem to get the bust darts to be un-dimpled, the bodice fit with the sash is completely different than it was without. The back (that I've had virtually no problems with since the first muslin) is very baggy. And to top it all off, the back neckline facing on the left side is too short. I haven't the faintest idea what happened there. I cut both back neckline pieces together, they were the same size. None of my alterations should have effected that particular piece of the garment...yadda yadda yadda. I have extra fabric so I could cut another piece & give it another go but...sigh. I just don't have it in me.

So, into the ziplock she goes. I came to the realization that at this point, I'm harboring such animosity toward this garment that even if it turned out I'm not sure I would wear it. Which is a shame. Because, boy, did I put a lot of time into it.

I'm washing my hands of it & moving onto the cardigan of New Look 6735 for my Spring sewing. My fabric is all laid out & ready to be cut. I'm looking forward to working with a knit again. As much as they intimidated me at first, I'm finding that I'm beginning to prefer working with knits over wovens.

  1. You're right, sometimes you just need to move on. I'm glad you've made peace with your Crepe, and am looking forward to seeing how New Look 6735 turns out for you. It's on my sewing list as well!
