Pink Chevron ….Kinda :)


Pink Chevron…Kinda 😛


Ok so Ill be the first to admit that sometimes I get so excited and blinded by my THOUGHT of what the finish garment is going to look like that I make MISTAKES…. 🙂 I forget DETAILS  🙂 
Now in this particular case I dare to say this was more of a BEAUTIFUL mistake but non the less it was a MISTAKE .. ..One thing I have to remember to pay attention to with PRINTS.. is just that .. they are prints and therefore must be treated as such when cutting … 
I bought this fabric while on vacation in Mobile Alabama … I had ran across it a few times at the local Joann\’s but, and this may sound funny but, the fabric has to speak to me 🙂 ….. and it didnt ..  .. until I got in Mobile … 🙂  My daughter decided on the pattern and while walking around looking for a print this beauty brushed across my skin .. I really LOVED how the color looked against my skin so I GOT IT … not even noticing at the time that I had turned away from this fabric countless times before … 
So I get home and cant wait to began cutting … 
Here is where the MISTAKE came in … 
At the time  I was more concerned that all the pieces would fit on the fabric I had purchased … 
OH! also I was thrilled about the video I was filming for you guys to make your own 🙂 
In all the haste ( created solely by myself)  I forgot the carnal rule of prints … ALWAYS pay attention to which way you cut so that your print lays the way you want it to when sewn together … 
SMH …. 
I did not .. so my Chevron Romper .. turned into a ZIG ZAG  Romper 🙂 
NOW .. with all that being said .. I still LOVE IT .. I love the color .. I love the fit 
And it is Super Duper comfortable !!
I plan to make another in a solid color … I will lengthen the pants on the next one .. 🙂 

The pattern was fairly easy to put together .. the only problem I encounter was that the casing was quite large enough for the elastic around the waist to I had to adjust it a bit.

I hope you hunnies like and I will post the video here soon on how to make your own .. 
OOOoo I almost forgot the pattern that I used was :
Simplicity 2222
I used a mixture of B and C .. I did not add all the studs . 
Until Next time XOXOXOXO

    I think it's lovely. I would have never guessed that you wanted the print to be horizontal. I made a maxi dress for a friend once and the prints didn't line up. I apologized to her about it. She said she hadn't noticed and was happy that someone made her a dress. Sometimes we are harder on ourselves because we see what others don't see.
