Brooklyn v1

You would think that I would have learned by now that I shouldn’t cut projects while distracted…. I always make mistakes. This is my latest.

You see, I had planned on making a short sleeved, non-tie, straight hem Brooklyn from a pretty floral fabric and a sleeveless, tie version made from a cool tye die print…. and this is what I wound up with: A short sleeved, non-tie shirt with a very confused hem (It is straight, but I cut out both the curves on the front and back of the pattern pieces ). This is what I get for talking on the phone while cutting out the pattern.

The end result is not love – I’m sure it’s because this is not what I had envisioned for this project, but also because that hem looks horrible! Since I had done some crazy stuff with the sides, I wound up having to skip the hem facing, at the same time it also has such a severe curve that creating a hem looks very uneven. I’ll chalk this one up to learning…. fortunately, I think I have enough of this material left over to do what I had originally intended for this project.
