For KCW day 3, I thought an obvious choice for my daughter who needs more dresses and my self-imposed Summer of Knits was my very own Racerback Dress!
But boy did that backfire. First I messed it up. Yes, I messed up the pattern that I wrote. It happens. Then I had to use the same fabric as binding because I had nothing that matched, and it wasn’t nearly stretchy enough to be used for binding, as you can see in the ripply-ness in the back.
And finally, she hated it. They can’t all be winners. I don’t think it’s so bad for a triple failure though. When I get around to changing out my thread and hemming it, I’ll try to foist it on my more reasonable middle kid. And if that doesn’t work, I’ll force it on my non-verbal third kid. If there ever was a reason to have three kids of the same gender, this is it.
In other more exciting news, Crafterhours is now being written from a different platform. Hopefully it doesn’t mean any visual changes to the blog since we’re trying to keep most things the same, but it should improve some behind-the-scenes stuff. There is one big change though. Now the author of each post is written at the top so Susan and I don’t have to insert our signature at the bottom of each post! Not that you need that information, as familiar as you are with our kids, houses, and writing styles, right? There’ll be a test on it later.
