Today I’m channelling my inner @dollyparton 💖
This is the other half of the disaster ‘Dolly’ dress (see previous post for skirt!). This dress taught me two things:
1. Sewing can be frustrating, even if you’ve been sewing for years it doesn’t make you immune to mishaps. Sometimes you just need a break from a project and then go back to it with fresh eyes a little later.
2. Never give up! Even the most ill-fitting, unflattering garment can be made into something you love! We see frustrated customers all the time, who often blame themselves for a project not going to plan. Sometimes the pattern just doesn’t work, other times the garment needs adjusting (as no one is a ‘normal’ shape or size!), and sometimes the cute illustration on the pattern envelope looks nothing like the real life garment!
My Dolly fabric is from the brilliant @minervacrafts and it was all made using our favourite @janomeuk machines 😊 . . .
