Took this great fabric
And this ZozoBugBaby pdf pattern
And screwed up an otherwise adorable dress with linen. See the limp waistband? What was I thinking? Believe it or not, it is sewn on straight, but I didn't cut the fabric with the grain AND it's limp linen so the heavy 2-acre cotton skirt is tugging on it.
Even laid completely flat, the waistband is all twisty. Oh crap. I love the dress otherwise. Loved the pattern too until I had to add the sleeves and nearly suffered a coronary trying to decipher the instructions (disclaimer: I'm not so good at logic puzzles). I said a bad word or seventeen, but somehow the dress still looks like a dress. With a twisty waistband. Made by a Dork.
