Let's start with my (infamous) green simplicity coat.. Ah, where to start? I learned not to automatically block fuse coating (and maybe never to do it for cashmere), to always muslin if you're making even small changes to a design, and that it's pretty darned difficult to make a bright, bold, smooth fabric look perfect.
All that said: I have a recovery plan! I have a lovely fur collar, so what I need to do now is remove the standing collar, nip it in more at the waist and hip, and then figure out a way to attach the collar. I'm pretty confident the coat will look good then... Cross your fingers for me.
And finally, my Closet Case Files Bombshell. Oh, how I loved this swimsuit! It's super flattering (after I graded it up - tutorial here), and the fabric was super cute. Alas, the fabric was also shoddy - the dye started running even before I wore it. And then as soon as it was on me, I had blue dye smearing across my legs. Girl Charlee eventually gave me a refund after I agreed to send the suit back to them, but it was really sad to not be able to wear it for the summer. Next year I'll be making one with better quality fabric!
