but I had never done tuxedo ruffles before! I really like how this turned out except that when you sew five ruffles onto the front of your shirt it does nothing to minimize a large bust! Which shouldn't be a surprise to me, I've always had a large bust and should know how to dress for my shape but when I tried on the shirt after I finished it I was like "woah, hello BOOBIES!"
Last week, I helped my friend Meredith refashion one of her old shirts for her daughter. At one point we needed to use the seam ripper to pick out a mistake. Meredith said something along the lines of "I wouldn't think you would know how to use a seam ripper" as if my seamstress abilities are so great that I never have to rip out a seam. Ha! If only! I could only laugh at that comment. Case in point: when I was sewing the last tuxedo ruffle onto this shirt I somehow managed to also sew the the back of the shirt to the front. Oops.
P.S.- can someone come to my house and make me stop refashioning clothes? i have (way belated) birthday and Christmas presents to make for crying out loud!
