Ugly Bog

Is it just me, or does this look like it needs a snap tape closure and labeled as a 'duster dress'?

It's not enough that the print is garish...this has to be some of the most off-grain fabric I've ever worked with. Nothing I could do would get it to hang straight.

I self-lined it, hoping some weight would help...but it's so off kilter I had problems getting the two layers to cooperate; I still need to re-do the bottom a bit. The outer layer bubbles on one side; the inner layer bubbles on the other.

And it was supposed to be a quick garment...

Oh, well, the video clip shot of this should only be about 10 seconds long; I'm not going to sweat it too much more.


  1. Ummm, well it does fit the requirement of "many colors." LOL

  2. Goodness! While reading the post, I'd forgotten about your Coat of Many Colors. I thought that was a dress for you! I wondered when you were going to say, "It's a wadder!"

    Thankfully I eventually remembered what it was for! It will serve its purpose well.

  3. LOL!!! If this wasn't for make-believe, it would DEFINITELY be a wadder!

    But, for what it's for...it should be fine.

    And it *was* only four bucks.

  4. That definitely is a coat of many colors!!! Mary
