craft : think hard
pretty & ugh!
hi all - hope you had a good weekend! i hesitate to post this one, but we've got to keep it real. as mentioned last week, sometimes my projects get messed up. actually, i don't know who i think i am as i'm really a beginner sewer, but i don't like to use formal patterns. at least, i didn't. so, i wanted to make some pajama bottoms to wear with t-shirts. i was going to use the old tattered pair i've had for a while as a guide and purchased beautiful seersucker fabric from b & j fabrics.
i rushed home, turned my pjs inside out and got busy. i was so proud that i realized i should turn them inside out to get the full size. well, the pride ended there. i forgot to take into account that the waist was ELASTICIZED (doh!) and after sewing everything together, it was so tiny. i realized my mistake and didn't know what to do.
eventually, i figured i could add a piece, but it forms a V. you know what I'm saying and see where it's pointing? it also accentuates my tummy kind of like maternity pants. i'm bummed. i suppose i could cut off the legs and make a new top part, but i'm sure the legs are not exactly the same size and that would be a nightmare. some bolsters for our sleigh bed might be nice ;).
