I think I played a video game or something that would always say, "I'm on a roll" I can't remember, though. Maybe I saw it on a t-shirt. Edited to add that I figured it out.. That's the saying on those nutroll candy bars. now I feel like a retard.
Being unemployed I have a lot of time on my hands. I usually sit around but today I decided to finish a dress I had started like a year ago. It is honestly really crappy, but considering my handicaps (being ill today, missing pattern pieces, huge pattern size...) I didn't do THAT bad. It was from a pattern from 1969 and a size 14. When I bought it. for 10 cents I figured, pff this will be no problem. WRONG. It was a disaster trying to make everything smaller. Maybe now that I know more about sewing I could do it but a year ago I could not. I made a huge mistake with the back so it is a lot longer than the front. I think I can hem it up to make them even. If I would put the ties right on my bust, rather than under, they would be even. Oh yeah and I made the hem badly. It is supposed to be reversible but I said forget that because I was frustrated, so now it's not reversible. Ok ok on with the pictures:
Stupid expression on my face.
Here's a sort of nice view of the fabric.
A crappy view of the back. It has two really bad darts in the back. Oh yeah and the whole dress is lined in the green fabric that you can see in the ties.
This is what it is supposed to look like. Mine doesn't quite look the same!
You can sort of tell in the picture of the pattern but the front of the dress ties in the back, with four ribbons, then the back has those long ties to shut the whole dress. So, there are no side seams connecting the back to the front. Kind of cool, kind of stupid!
Hope y'all like it!!!
