Hey guys! I have still been busy sewing up a storm using the patterns from the Sew Fab sale. Have you purchased your bundle yet???
Boy, was I excited when I saw that the Bimaa Sweater was included in the bundle! I started this one right away and loved it!
But here is the thing.
I was naughty and didn't read the directions or suggestions on the pattern….. and this happened…..
It won't even fit over her arms. ha!
Completely, utterly, totally, literally my fault 100%.
I loved my owl sweatshirt knit so much and thought it would be totally perfect for this pattern…. I didn't read the part of the pattern that says "use a knit with 4 way stretch"…. this owl fabric is not that at all. My owl fabric is actually closer to a woven.
I should know this. I have been sewing for years and this is something that I should have known and I am kicking myself.
So, I now have to figure out what to do with it. I don't want to toss it because I love it. Everything else about it fits perfectly except for the fact there is no stretch. I am thinking of cutting it down the middle, adding a placket and a zipper? Maybe make it a zip up hoodie?
We shall see…. I plan to work on it today and I will update when I figure it out. I also plan to make a new one…. with stretchy knit:)
