Thank you for your kind comments regarding the pattern placement on my Happy Skirt! I can now happily report that after wearing the skirt out for the first time, nobody was shocked, with the small exception of Child 1 who said the pattern placement was “a little strange”, but only after being prompted. Coming from a 15 year old I take this as a compliment!
Today I have a similar project – similar is as much as the pattern placement again is a little strange – but this time it might be “unfortunate strange” rather than “fun strange”…
But judge for yourself:
So far, I am actually quite proud about the pattern matchig. Those reptile patterns are pretty symmetrical across both legs ( can you hear the voice of Patrick Grant off the Great British Sewing Bee in the back of your head as you read this? “It’s preeeetty symmetrical!”) . When I bought the fabric I didn’t even realise it was a reptile print, I just liked the colours. I had always thought I’m not your snakeprint kinda girl, but clearly things have changed.
That’s all so far so good. But look what happens when I lift up my top:
Honestly: How bad is this? Is it as bad as I think it is? I never realised what I was doing until I put them on for the first time and found I had marked out my bum crack for all to see…
Not really sure what to do at this point. Do I wear them with a long top? Or do I wear them and simply not care? Or can you think of another way of saving them? I really would like to, in all other respects they are a nice pair of trousers. Just to prove it, feast your eyes on this:
