i am often amazed at myself, and not always for the right reasons.
it would not be quite so stupefying if oona circa 2012 hadn't repeated the same instruction to futureoona on back bodice as well.
(you do see that i corrected 8/8ths to 9/8ths, right? riiiiiiiiiight.)
when i dug this cynthia rowley pattern out and found what horror i had wreaked upon it (lopped shoulder seams diagonally, took an inch tuck out of the pattern at bust level, made new darts that pointed anywhere but said bust) i thought, wow, i must've done this craziness, like, WAY early in my sewing career. silly young oona, how far i've come! but nope, i made this shining example of pattern adjusting up just over a year ago.
you can see more of it here on kollabora. in real life, who knows where you can see it. it went out to goodwill in The Second Great Escape From LA, during my purge of Things That Did Not Fit And/Or Looked CrazyFace On Me.
looking at the shots, i do tend to don my rose colored glasses. it wasn't that bad. but no. this pink lady hung unworn that summer, which is truth enough.
do you hang onto such creatures? have you abused patterns?
