I can't believe I did this

I didn't even know where to begin in matching up this printed fabric when I was cutting my pieces and I guess I just gave up. Once it was sewn it became obvious to me. Ugh. We'll call this one a house dress. Would you wear this out of the house? Next time I have a print like this I will handle it properly, I promise.

This is view A of the new Lisette portfolio dress.


It's a good thing we can learn from our mistakes. I'm usually so careful when I lay out my fabric, but this print was off center and it caught me off guard. My instincts were laughing at me when I was cutting. I knew I was doing it wrong but I kept on going. Why did I do that??? Next time will be better. I'm thinking a rose colored brooch/flower would put a little distance between the prints to balance it and make it less obvious.


The left and right fronts should be a mirror image of each other. It's pretty bad, isn't it? *sigh* Next time..

Pretend you only saw this part. A cardigan will go a long way to cover it too.

I didn't notice a thing and had to read further to know what was wrong. Honestly, I think it's fine!

I didn't notice till you pointed it out either. I get what you mean but I think it looks nice.

I never would have noticed that! Ever. It totally took until you pointed it out before I could even figure out what you were talking about. Wear it with pride!

I was searching and searching to try to figure out what was wrong. I needed you to point it out. I think it is pretty and wearable out of the house.
