My new top – a bit meh!

Hello Lovelies

I’ve spent the last couple of weeks working really hard on a new pattern, two muslins, lots of fitting adjustments, beautiful Liberty tana lawn and the final garment is meh.  Although it is perfectly wearable I’m just not happy with the finished result and it has really knocked my sewing mojo.  I’m sure I’m not the only one who feels disappointed when something that you’ve poured my heart and soul into just doesn’t turn out as well as you expected.  I am struggling to get the confidence back to try another new pattern as it takes so much work to get a good fit and yes, I have a number of T&T patterns now in my array but there is something about wanting to keep learning, improving my skills and of course playing with new shinies (patterns).  Can I ask how you deal with the disappointment when a garment you have worked so hard on doesn’t turn out how you envisaged?
