I kept joking with my hubby this after making this blouse that "drag lines are a drag", hence the title. This is a flop sewing project for me. It was partly self drafted, which could be the problem. Everyone has their bad days. The drag lines aren't horrible, but after sewing for awhile, it's easy to spot mistakes and they can bother you.
|I am trying to look seriously mad here at my project. There were a few moments at the machine where I wanted to throw something, but in the end, had to smile at myself.|
This is the amazing part of the story, I still love this blouse. Been wearing it every week since starting my self challenge, yep still hanging in there, wearing my handmade clothing everyday. It's been good to wear the things I have made even if they are wonderful, okay or imperfect. It's all good. I wore this blouse yesterday and got a ton of comments, while maybe 5 to be exact, three from perfect strangers. My big solution for the drag lines, a little pink cardigan!
I think now I can spot my mistake. Can you see it? It's the shoulder line, where is it? It's too far back. I found this video on YouTube by Gertie. It has me thinking a lot about shoulder seam lines. I may try this blouse again. I love the pink, been in a pink mood lately.
