This Zipper Will Work When Pigs Fly
I bought some fabric off Ebay a while back and loved it so much that I put in for another order right away. I made a shrug pattern the other day and knew I wanted to use this adorable flying pig fabric and maybe even make some matching panties. I took some pink jersey knit I had from a long time ago to line the hood and make the cuffs on the arm. But when I went to put the zipper on I encountered a problem. One side of the shrug would stretch and not match up. I redid the zipper 3 times and it only ended up making it worse. I may try again with another cut of fabric and pray once again to the sewing gods, that seemed to work last time. ;) The mini shrug itself didn't turn out too bad as a whole. As long as you can't see the bottom of the zipper where it doesn't match perfectly. I'm keeping it for myself since I don't mind the mistake and using it for a set for my modeling along with the matching sexy panties I made. Here are a couple of pictures of me in the shrug hoodie. I love it sooo much! WAAHH! Why won't it just effing work?
