That Butterick dress? Well, its going to the back of the sewing closet. (Where wadders live.) Why? See below picture - and notice the serious bunching at waist. (Especially on the side where the zipper is attached, that's pretty yuck.) Big 4 patterns have been running large at size 12, so I bravely cut a 10. Yeah, I'm not a 10. Also, I can't sew a bias skirt or attach a zipper to one without causing serious stretching out of shape (note to self, stabilize next time.) Plus, I don't like the fabric (ah well, it was cheap.)
I might finish this if I lose 10 pounds and inches off my hip (also known as, when pigs fly.)
What else is jinxed? Hmm. Roll call - my TV died, my camera cable died, my computer is threatening to... Excuse me, I'm feeling a bit sorry for myself. It'll pass. My life is good.
