Actually fish faces in the rain, I'm told it's what all the kids do these days.
WIN - Manequim blazer in stretch denim sewn in 2009
This is a free download on the Manequim site, but it only comes in one size. At one time I was that size and took the plunge, even though all the directions were in Portuguese. Since I was no stranger to jacket construction, the whole thing together without much of problem. (Some sewing manuals were checked, I'm not that amazing.) Here's 2009 me in the jacket.
FAIL - Darling Ranges Dress in silk georgette sewn in 2012
I never wear this dress and it is no one's fault but my own. First of all I didn't really know how to handle georgette and instead of researching on the internet I just charged ahead like a bull in a china shop. The georgette was cut on some muslin, a technique that seemed to work for crepe de chine, but failed miserablely for this fabric. Every pattern piece changed it's shape once I picked it up. For more on that tail of woe you can check out the FO blog post, but let's just say the damn hem still pisses me off.
