I don't do wadders.
I *hate* investing time and money in something that gets tossed, even though I know all the philisophical comfort words like 'oh, it was worth the effort because you learned something.'
Yeah, I know.
I still hate wadders.
I have a whole arsenal of anti-wadder techniques. I've been known to completely unstitch a serged and topstitched garment so I could recut it to fit better and then sew it back, just to get something that I'd know I'd wear. I've removed entire garment pieces (sleeves/pockets) to get something wearable. I've taken the bodice of a dress and turned it into a top, then recut the skirt portion into a (pieced) shell top.
You get the idea.
So when I say that the pink jacquard knit cardigan is a wadder, I ain't just trying to move on. I made a big boo-boo on the selection of the fabric and it simply is not wearable and nothing I can do will make it wearable and I'm not wasting any more time on it. So there.
The shell top is not wonderful, but I did finish it and put it in the closet. It *might* get worn, since it's made to be a bottom layer and the ripply hem likely will not show.
I decided this fabric was meant to be lingerie...and it would make lovely bras...and turning it into a twin set was violating the Great Chain of Being and would result in horrible consequences.
But...I didn't throw the cardi away; I put it in a bag with the rest of the remnants. Just in case I get an urge to emulate Rusty Bobbin and try sewing bras someday... ;)
