Dress Gone Awry

I started making this very cute little dress yesterday. I was almost finished when I had this genius idea to add a reverse cuff to the sleeve, which used to be a long sleeve.

The cuff just didn't work, and instead of simply taking it off, I proceeded to hack it off. Yep. That was my brilliant fix. So my long sleeve turned into a 3/4 length sleeve. But the sleeves weren't even. So more hacking. And more. Until now I'm left with an uneven, sleeveless mess, mocking me.

I've done the same thing but with bows... It's soooo frustrating. I think I have this brilliant idea and it doesn't work then I try to fix and it doesn't work... It's like it just keeps getting worse until it finally ends in the trash. : )

Sorry to hear about your mishap with your dress, but the video is wonderful! I love Bert & Ernie :)

Bert and Ernie are always funny!! Thanks for sharing!


I don't make clothing, but I've done the same type of fix when making clay things, evening things up and ending up with barely anything! Thanks for the Bert & Ernie link too! :D

Sorry about your mishap but I did like the video of Bert and Ernie. Maybe next time it will all work out. I do know what you mean. Sometimes its just so hard to make things even.
