I had already worn the shirt a couple of time, telling myself the whole time that I really wasn't bothered by the hem. But I was. So, I decided to take matters into my own hands and fix it so it would go straight across like I had imagined my layering shirt to be. This should have been a quick fix. I'm not a master seamstress, but I certainly have sewn enough things that this little project would be a no-brainer. Right. I have found that anytime I think no-brainer about a project, I should be prepared for some sort of impending doom.
I cut the shirt straight across (no problem yet) and proceeded to sew (no problem yet). Once I put the shirt on to eye my successful fix, I realized that the material was all stretched out in a weird way where I had just sewn it. It was all fluttery across the bottom (problems begin). And the seam where the new stitches were kind of flipped out. The material was all wompy-jawed. Clearly it was not meant to be cut and re-hemmed.
Moral of the story? Don't go shopping with a tired baby.
