That's right...I have been in a sewing slump. Maybe it's because the rest of life has just gotten in the way? No time these past few weeks? I'm not sure, because certainly I'm full of ideas, have a pile of projects waiting, and I'm always in the mood for a new something. If I could only get this red dress made....
This is my saga...a dress that I am determined to complete, despite every obstacle that has come between us.
Last month, while I was browsing on my lunch hour, I was struck by the red and black knits at Macy's:
Bold, fabulous, big chunks of red and black.
I already had plans to make Vogue 1205 and already had the red ponte, so I think I was inspired enough to get it going.
Until: I didn't make a muslin.
I had fit issues.
I cut the wrong sides for some pattern pieces, so I had to buy more ponte and re-start.
After getting the bodice cut a larger size ( which I figured would save me the time of doing an all out full bust adjustment)
It didn't work. I should know better.
So back to the drawing board to re-cut and do an actual full bust adjustment.
In the midst of taping up my new pattern piece, I lost my roll of tape....I wonder if Birdie has it.
And you know how that goes. I could have gone to the store and been back in the time I spent searching for a $1.49 roll of tape! Then of course, all week long, I forgot to buy more tape. Good grief.
So, today, I'm going to get a pedicure, and buy some tape, and then I'm going to tackle this dress project once again. I really am.
