LOL PATZ

OK, this is an impromptu post because I have just seen what could possibly be the ugliest sewing pattern ever...

seriously, the poor model looks like she has the thighs of a Rugby player, or she is going to a costume party dressed as Ursula the sea witch







and the worst think is, this was from Ottobre magazine, shame on you Ottobre I expect these shenanigans from Burda, but I thought you were more reliable than that.

  1. That would be the perfect Ursula dress, maybe just add a sweetheart neckline and you're all set! You should make Lol Patz a regular feature, or I'll be tempted to copy your idea : P

    1. I think it may well become a regular thing, I keep seeing more and more patterns that make my scratch my head in confusion and wonder why any designer would release it in to the world, and thats without including Vogues recent spate of bizarro photography.

  2. Really bad pattern, I agree. But the first skirt I made is definitely in the running too - a straight skirt with suspenders. My mother took a picture of me because she said it looked like I was wearing a barrel and I wouldn;t believe how bad it was later if she didn't have a picture to prove it!

    1. haha mean mother! mostly my sewing has been ok, however I made an A line denim skirt recently which makes me look like I've wrapped a tee-pee around my waist.

  3. hehe, I agree not terribly flattering, is it?! I imagine without all that gathering pulling it in around the knees though it could be a really nice dress :)
