Last time I shared my top 5 hits of 2018, part of Gillian’s annual top 5 series. Today I’m sharing the projects that didn’t go quite so well. My misses of 2018 are:
1. Refashioned jumpsuit
I finished this at the end of last year, and OH MY GOSH WHAT WAS I THINKING. Everything about this outfit is terrible, and I want to burn my computer just to get rid of this picture. Once I realised what I looked like in it, the jumpsuit went straight to the op shop.
2. Hemlock Tee
This is less a miss and more just one of those unfortunate things that happens to garments. The neckline of one of the many Hemlock tees I sewed this year stretched out in the wash, and hangs off my shoulders. It’s currently sitting at the bottom of my wardrobe while I decide its fate (likely, fancy scraps). Eh, I’ve got enough Hemlocks to go around.
3. In the Folds Wide Leg Pants
I really wanted to love these pants. But I had to accept that they were just too tight around the waist, and that in general I find high waisted pants too uncomfortable to wear for more than 0.5 seconds. I think I’ll accept my elastic pant fate and leave the high waisted, stiff jeans for the youths.
And that’s it! I’ve made more this year that went to the op shop, or was sold, but I don’t consider them misses as such, just projects that didn’t work out for me. I’m actually quite proud of myself that I’ve come to the point of generally being happy with the quality of my creations, and if it isn’t for me, then it was a learning experience.
