Nailed it

Butterick 5353 muslin - nailed it - FAILEnough said.  : )

The “nailed it” meme is so hilarious.  I almost fell off my chair at these “17 Pinterest Fails” on BuzzFeed.

And no, I haven’t yet mustered up the energy to tackle my disaster muslin from last night.  I think its timeout will need to last at least another 24 hours.  I’ll get back to it eventually though – I really do want that dress!

  1. ha I loved that buzzed feed post too. I’m just getting into Pinterest but I can already imagine all my hilarious fails! I find some vogue patterns have super weird sizing. I remember the second dress I made when I started sewing last year was a similar experience – too loose and too tight (tho your’s doesn’t have the second part!) I couldnt bear to unpick all the topstitching so It’s still hanging there waiting…


    • Yeah I hear ya! Going back to the drawing board is a little depressing, but hopefully we’ll both get back to our frankenstein dresses. So far I’ve had the best luck with the fit of vintage patterns – perhaps I have a vintage body? Gets better with age? : )


    • No problem, that post was hilarious! I keep going back to it all these months later. As for the muslin, hopefully I can turn it into a success… with wine glass in hand. : )


  2. Haha, that was brilliant, I was laughing out loud – some of the baking pictures reminded me of some of my own “successes”!! Thanks for sharing – and I hope you get your dress back under control 🙂
