OMG! What happened here? Things were going swimmingly well with my version of the Knip Mode skirt… that is, until tonight. I bagged the lining and attached the waistband last night. Tonight was going to be all about the buttons and buttonholes. I was at my sewing machine testing my buttonholes out on the fabric and checking to see if I liked how my Emerald 183 attached the buttons by 8:15 this evening. (Oh, fyi, I decided to go with the white buttons.)
The testing was very successful. I cracked my knuckles and got to marking my buttonholes and button placements on the skirt. The first pleat was beautiful. The rest of the pleats are one fat droopy, slobbery mess. Ok, there was no actual drool involved, but if pleats could drool, these would be dripping oceans of drool.
Where did I go wrong? I ask you. I beg you. Can this wadder be moved back to the land of beautiful clothes? (Oh, and if it could make me look 20 lbs thinner, I wouldn’t complain.)
Here’s my sad wadder:
And here’s Cidell’s gorgeous sculplted pleat beauty, full of life and awesomeness:
My skirt needs a makeover. HELP!!!
Any and all suggestions will be desperately accepted. Thank you!
