70s Go-Go dancer
After the tweed vest disaster, a few weeks ago, I was now ready to tackle another sewing project. You know, one that comes in an envelop that contains difficult to work with sheets of thin brown silk paper! Anyway, I purchased McCall's 5555 (a mix of A and D) but it turned out that I looked like a 70s Go-Go dancer. So I "tried" to alter the sleeves, the back, the length, the neck line...well, too many things to call that pattern a success story! I must say that I start to feel a little discouraged about my ability to sew clothes. But good news! I will take a sewing class this fall and hopefully create something nice and one day...maybe one day...manage to make a dress out of an awesome japanese sewing book!
