My most recent fail was for today's tutorial post, oops! I had followed Casey's 50's dress tutorial link to making a bodice block for myself (my dream to make summer dresses out of the forever accumulating fabric almost realized), started the project and failed. Then I tried again, and failed again. Into the recycler went my attempted patterns, after I puzzled over it for an hour and decided...
that I learnt two things:
1) choose one system of measurement (Metric OR Imperial) and,
2) get someone else to help with measurements.
Bah! Ah well. I'll try again, and it'll be wonderful. Then I'll post my success!
Do you have a recent 'Fail' project? It's ok, don't be shy!
During my quest to find out what went wrong I also found a bunch more bodice block styles on burda style, next: the sweetheart bodice.
