Sometimes you try an experiment and it just doesn’t work, you know? I had the brilliant idea to convert the bust darts in the Cosmo dress to ease. Nope. Uh uh. Doesn’t look good. I should have rotated the dart, but I wasn’t thinking. Had I thought the process through completely (not easy when the kids are demanding that I be the entertainment committee, customers need attention and Hoover is imploring that I let him out to rid the world of squirrels and bunnies), I would have split the dart and rotated part of it out of the side seam.
Oh well. Fortunately, thanks to full yard cuts, I have enough of the fabric to make another bodice without having to pull any more.
I’ll cut the new one and sew it up this afternoon. Stay tuned!
