What looks so simple sometimes can be more than a notion (play on words, ha). My dear cousin Kendra asked me to make Vogue 8968 for her a couple of months ago. Yes, I am just getting started sort of. I actually started a few weeks ago, but I had a few mishaps.
First let me say, this is why I am very selective of what and for whom I sew for. Not that my dear cousin Kendra is a problem, but my mistake letting her pick the fabric. A very ravelly (is that a word?), a silky not so pleasant fabric to work with.
I was half way through getting it done when I made a huge boo boo. Yes, I cut right through the middle of the darn dress not paying attention.
A gash so huge I couldn't recover from:
so needless to say I had to go buy fabric and start all over again. On to my second attempt, and again I was not paying attention, and I did't add the extra length in it as I was asked to do so, so that the dress would be a little longer. Back to Joann's I went and again, I had to start all over. Not to mention the freakin dress requires that you slip stitch the entire bottom section inside the dress. Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgh. Why do I continue to do this to myself.
So tuned, hopefully I will be done today with this nightmare this evening.
