Fargo, North Dak...
My husband won tickets on Friday night for Saturday night’s Smackdown vs ECW wrestling show. Me being me, immediately said “I have nothing to wear!” and drew up this design. Started it about 1:30 on Sat afternoon, and finished about 6. The fabric, while I love the color and feel, was an absolute nightmare to sew. between the stretching, and the slipping, and the ROLLING, I about had a fit. At about 3 pm, I thought, ‘hey! I’m almost done! maybe I can make TWO shirts today!’ that’s when everything decided to make my life miserable. I ripped the bust seams, cut, re-gathered, re-sewed, ripped seams again…I would try it on, and pin it in place, and it would be great, and then try to sew it, and it would look like a 5 year olds art project gone wrong. I think it finally turned out halfway decent, although again, not exactly as I envisioned it (I wanted the side sleeves tighter- next time.) I still like it.
But if I ever see this fabric at the store again, I will run away from it. Cause I’m pretty sure it’s evil.
