Yesterday was a day of mixed emotions.
I was HAPPY! when I received this:
I was sad when I remembered I have to sew 6 pr of these first:
Sometimes I let my mouth overload my buttocks….or my ability to complete those tasks which exceeds my capacity to stay entertained. These culottes are for a friend who once entered her girls into a beauty pageant with dresses she had “hand sewn” – (ie – she used fabric glue for every seam)…luckily the dresses did not come apart whilst the girls were onstage. These girls are much older now and I don’t want them running around playing volleyball with glued-up seams…there’s just something not quite right about that. So I volunteered to make them a pair…mom decided they needed 3 each and bought fabric for said amount of pairs. I can’t very well just make one pair and then allow her to (gasp!) glue the others…so here I am.
Personally, I think this is one of the ugliest patterns I have ever seen for culottes…but I’m loving the whole idea of the skirt over the shorts thing for camp this year. I’ll have to make Katie’s with a little more pizazz. I made some last year for her and they were the envy of all the girls at camp. I laugh because they were so easy to make…but this pattern (excuse me for being crude) sucks eggs. I dislike going by patterns…all the marking and following directions…sigh.
Which is EXACTLY why I can’t wait to start scrapping again.
