Into every sewing life some misses must come...and here are my five most disastrous pieces of the year! Well, perhaps not that dramatic, but they are the five pieces that I feel were least successful of anything I've made over 2019.
First on my Miss List is this houndstooth skirt. While I love it in theory -- the shape, the print -- in practice I cursed the static every time I wore it, and could not figure out a way to reduce it. Darn polyester! So I think I will pass it on to someone who won't mind so much. If I can find someone like that!
I like this pattern but haven't worn this one too much -- I'm pretty sure it's because the sleeve is uncomfortably tight. My goal is to remove the lower sleeve and replace it with a larger one, and then see how I like it! Fortunately I have quite a bit of this fabric leftover.
Although another Sorbetto made it to my tops list, I haven't worn this version at all. I think it's fabric choice here -- it doesn't fit right, and the neckline is a little stretched out too. I have a friend who might like it so I think it will be leaving my closet soon.

My final Miss was so bad I didn't even blog it. I took a photo as evidence and then I gave the pattern away too. LOL! This style is NOT suited for me. Lesson learned!
