In case you missed them, you can find the other posts here:. Really, it serves me right for not making a toile, but I was imagining this as a wearable toile and wanted to spend time practising some shirt making techniques. This one really goes wrong with the fit. I suspect it would have worked much better in a drapey viscose fabric, and this stiff cotton poplin might be partly to blame. However, I lost heart with trying this pattern again and relegated it to something to wear whilst gardening.
My Top 5 Sewing Fails of 2015
2 thoughts on “My #Sewing Top 5: when garments fail…”
Ah, the green coat of doom. What can I say, it was a learning experience. I had high hopes. In the end I think my main errors were: using a pattern variation that was never going to be flattering on me, trying to over-fit the pattern, using the wrong kind of interfacing, and using too much heat during pressing. Pretty major ones! Sound Of Music B No fault of the pattern at all: I made one mistake after the other, and the fabric proved flimsy and prone to pilling.

Hey, I’m Elizabeth!
With some perspective, you can recover from a big sewing mistake without losing your mojo. I had one of those projects just the other day. I know the steps by heart. So ultimately most of our sewing projects are experiments. Anyway, I was making this pouch — a little zip pouch made from an oatmeal wool melton with the most adorable mini Dresden plate on the front.
Hey everyone! I want to thank all of you for your kind words, thoughts and prayers in regards to my last post about my dad. I am overwhelmed in a good way by the outpouring of support I received via blog comments, Instagram comments, and emails. I sincerely appreciate all the comments and emails, all the kind words and wishes, prayers and positive thoughts, and I am so so grateful for all of you. With that being said, I do have a positive update! On Saturday evening, I came to the hospital after getting off my shift at Craft South which was a whole drama in itself — my dad is in a hospital in Hendersonville, TN, which is about 20 miles from where I am in Nashville. A miracle in itself because most of the stations here were completely out! They took the tube out on Sunday morning and have slowly been introducing soft foods and liquids, and he may be able to get out of the ICU and into a normal room within the next day or two — and then home after that hopefully soon!
