The Fabric FROM HELL!

Pretty isn't it? You can't tell from this photo, but it has a lovely texture too.

This is the fabric that Paige chose for her Christmas Dress. In some ways, it turned out better than I expected (believe it or not) but I never anticipated the problems that I would have with this.

First of all, I have NEVER encountered fabric like this. It defies many of the laws of physics. This fabric has abilities known only in Science Fiction and fantasy novels. This fabric has properties that allow it to CHANGE SHAPE!

I should have been suspicious when I laid the fabric out to pin the pattern on. I noticed the difference in length from one side of the fabric to the other. I just thought that the staff at Spotlight are getting really slack and this is the crookedest cutting I have ever seen... one side of the fabric was longer than the other by about 75cms. I can't really be sure of this though, due to the shape-shifting properties of the fabric, which hadn't been revealed to me yet...

My real problems began after cutting out the fabric, when I watched the pieces change shape.

  1. Don't you hate those slippery fabrics?! They totally have a mind of their own. Hope the dress turned out well in spite of the fabric.
