From concept to reality (*big announcer voice). After weeks of hard work? Well, work all the same. After weeks of putting the pieces slowly together...
Wait for it...
Dress is done!
Ok, so last I left was the skirt part was done, needing zipper and getting attached to the belt.
So after attaching the belt to the top and the skirt to the belt I noticed it was off a little? Ok, so it was a bunch. Decision time: do I undo all that I just do or do I leave it (imagine as I say it a grossed out face)
So I ripped up the dress I thought I had just been close to finished. BUT only in a section to the left of the zipper so that it would match the right side.
After I ripped it out and I sewed it back, ripped it out and sewed it back... second times the charge?
Then on to pinning in the zipper again! Ouch my fingers! Pretty sure I suck them more than the dress
Perfect? I think not
I had extra material round the zipper so I snipped it out!
So here is my dress: ON!
My dress is not perfect... at all! But I am proud of the first piece of clothes I ever sewed. What's yours like? Silly yes, and why thanks I do look like I walked out of Sound of Music. No, it wasn't my goal. Yes, I am ok with it. Why?
