I'm sorry guys that I didn't get the newsletter out this week -- my week was thrown off. This week's theme is "Don't judge a pattern by its cover." We will attempt to make attractive garments from very unattractive pattern (envelopes).
Jen, you are toooo funny.. But I am having the same feelings....Confetti may be in our future.
I took an 'OLD ugly" straight dress.. I mean ugly.. I used some cute floral summery looking fabric..I thought the fabric would pull it out of the ugly bin...nope !!!!! so, now I pulled out some stripe fabric and did some cute little pleated pockets... added some stripe cuffs to the sleeve.. and am fixing to sew them on..if that doesnt work???????????????? I dont know??? start a fresh with a 'new ugly",ha I started early, so I could go to plan B...if necessary.lol
feel free to post what you have made whenever you like - I have found everyone here to be very supportive, non-judgemental and to enjoy whatvever you have made, whenever you made it. Your jacket sounds perfect for this week's challenge. Mena will tell you what the tag is when she starts this week's thread, usually some time on Monday.
Looking forward to your jacket x
Ok ladies, I can't decide - I've pulled out five patterns from the ugly drawer (well, I think they're ugly as they're just not something I'd make usually! Some of you may disagree with the 'ugly' label on a couple of them, though!) but I just can't decide which one to use! Argh! Help?!?
Here's the patterns I'm trying to decide between. Which one do you think I should use for this week's challenge??
well, I like the top left one the most... I especially like the hair on the left hand lady...
the most unpromising is top right.... hope you have some white tights tee hee
I think the top left one would actually make a dress you could wear again....
depends how much of a challenge you want! I vote top left x
