of course, technically it wasn’t allowed, but i did have some scraps left over from my #fqchallenge masterplan. see, originally i was going to really go overboard and make a skirt and blouse to go over my playsuit, sort of like this butterick weekender pattern (that actually was my base for part of my work):
but the shirt, in spite of homemade pieced bias tape and a dismembered zombie head on the pocket, was nothing but a hot mess.
but i persevered! i made the skirt anyway. this circle skirt pattern is my favorite, because it is so easy to play with. i quickly ended up with something fun and wearable, even if it didn’t match my original masterplan.
i just have to give a shout-out to the other ladies who shared the fun with me:
- amity of lolita patterns
- jen of workroom social
- carolyn of diary of a sewing fanatic
- and the criminal mastermind herself, oonaballoona
i really loved how, even with ridiculous choices and restrictions, everyone found a way to make a garment that was nonetheless true to herself! so, readers, what do you think? should we let oona continue to hand out assignments? or do we cut off her margarita supply?
