So, I joined in the curtain-along, planning to make my all-time favourite caraco, but I sort of ended up sabotaging myself, and now I have a mental block against the project. :-/
I started off well, or so I thought. I was going to make the gown to go over a pair of pocket hoops or a small pannier, and, of course, I instantly forgot about that when I started drafting my caraco. ~facepalm~
At least Fabric Cat likes the fabric. A lot.
So right now I have three options. First, I could buy another curtain panel, which I don't really want to do since it'll put this project over my own self-imposed budget, and I could recut the front of the caraco. Or, I could cut the skirt so that it's shorter, but even, all the way around, but that will drastically change the look of the ensemble, and from preliminary pinning to see how it would look, I'm not fond of the look. Or, I could just put this gown over a bumroll so the skirt of the caraco would be even all the way around. Problem with that is that the petticoat actually fits perfectly over the panniers. UGH!
Right now, the petticoat is finished but for the waistband, and the back of the caraco has been en fourreau-ed to fit.
I just don't know what to do about this caraco, and I feel very deflated about it. Suggestions?
