This week we are showcasing the behind-the-scenes bloopers that don't tend to make it on the blog. Today I'm going to share a few blunders and then I have some fun guest bloggers lined up all ready to show you some funny stuff the rest of the week.
Back when I first started this blog and I made this dress (shown below), it was the second draft. The first one was a horrible mess. I didn't know much about sewing at that point. I had purchase some really heavy upholstery fabric that I loved and even though I though it was a bit too heavy I tried it anyway. (The second draft below was made with different fabric. Obviously :)
I sewed up the side to make the skirt part. I thought I'd better try it on before I sewed it to the top shirt part. I wanted to make sure I could get it on. Well, after some real work I got it on....kind of. It got stuck around my chest and butt. I couldn't even pull it off. I was stuck. Really stuck.
I decided to weigh out my options. I could call my husband down to help me, but I knew I would have to endure a lifetime of humiliation if I did so. (My husband enjoys laughing at me. He once took me down to the ground with a small push when he noticed I was struggling to get my feet out of my shorts as I undressed.)
I decided to do it on my own. I inched my way to the table and finally found my seam ripper. I had to rip myself out of the tube stitch by stitch. As each stitch ripped I found myself able to breath a little more. Ah! Sweet oxygen. Finally, I was released. I decided to call it a night.
I also thought it would be fun to share some ugly pictures too. I take a lot of pictures to get the ones I use on my blog. Here are some of "the others."
Sometimes projects don't work unless you make this specific face.
Is this thing on?
This one is one if my favorites.
And lastly, some of you might remember last year's "special guest" during Hair Week.
Life isn't perfect and neither is blogging.....which makes for a lot of laughs along the way.
Thanks for dropping in.
