Please excuse the wrinkles in these pictures but I am so annoyed I couldn't bring myself to make it look "nice" for the camera!
(Yeah bad blogging practice but it's one of those days).
Wore it for like three hours while a friend was over for lunch. Afterwards when I went to put in the laundry I noticed this laddering/fraying happening one of the back shoulder areas:
I kinda feel like the sewing universe is against me at the moment :(
The textile content was listed as rayon and I can only guess that this batch was a little bit more prone to weakness/splitting than usual.
As far as I can remember I didn't catch my dress on anything, so it appears to have split at a stress point (shoulder blades pulling, maybe need more room there?).
Soo annoying as the fabric did feel lovely to wear and the print is quite pretty:
I'm going to hack it off just above the waistline shirring and see if I can salvage a skirt from it.
Think it might be time to start investing in better quality fabrics.
Til next time....
Happy Sewing :)
