I was surfing the net, as I am want to do, and I came across this picture:
ERMEGHERD! I thought PIECE OF PISS ! I CAN MAKE THAT!
TOO EASY KAMPEEZI!
So after a quick trip to Lincraft, last night I set about sewing up this fabulous creation.
I only got slightly cranky *cough* because I think I chose the wrong sort of fabric. I went for the Cotton Suiting fabric because it doesn't require ironing and it doesn't wrinkle. It's also a frickin NIGHTMARE to sew. Slippery bloody shit. TBF was trying to relax and listen to his Henry Rollins radio show which me shouting random expletives "Farrrrrrrrrrrk. Just friggin stay.......... Bloody hell! Arrrrrrr Son of a..............."
4 hours later I had finished and I was ready to try on my incredible masterpiece.
OH MY LAWD ALMIGHTY BEAM ME UP SCOTTY.
It was perfect.
It was too big. Had no shape. Exposed side boob AND back fat and the shoulders put Tracey Grimshaw's shoulder pads to shame as they stuck out & up.
All in all I looked like a reject extra from an episode of Star Trek.
It took almost another hour for TBF & I to stop laughing.
I think I might just stick to ACTUAL patterns from now on.
EPIC SEWING FAIL.
