I hate failure. And I hate craft fails. But I'm going to bounce back from this one. After all, it did keep me from falling asleep last night, but as I lay in bed, totally restless, I'm pretty sure I came up with a solution. Hopefully, I'll get a chance to try it out today.
Here's the gist of it. Remember my Bubble It Up dress? The back of this was an amazingly happy accident. I love it. I think it's gorgeous.
However, as I was making that dress, I knew there was an easier way to do it. So yesterday I set about making a better tutorial. It was going okay, but then when I slipped it on Riley, I ran into a snag. The front is fine...
But here's what happened with the back: the lining flopped in.
... and the dress poofed out.
And actually, I think I'll kind of like this dress better if the bubble doesn't go all the way up but has a more fitted bodice. If you like it this way, don't worry; I plan on making tutorials for both options... and I'll fix the back on this one. Third time's the charm, right? :)
