Is there a cure for stupidity?
I hope so. Can you tell me what wrong with these pictures?
Yep, that’s right. Yours truly, idiot extraordinaire, put the ties of the dress on the side seams, not at the front edges of the bodice. How am I supposed to wrap this wrap dress? I don’t know because it ain’t gonna wrap without those ties in the right place.
I made great progress last night and thought I only had to attach the sleeves and hem the dress tonight. But when I tried on the dress last night I was at a complete loss as to how to wrap the dress. It took me 10 minutes and a lot of staring at the instructions before I finally saw my glaring error. DOH!!!
I’m sure I can fix this hot mess too, but I was too tired to do it last night. I hope you’ll all still be my friends after this comedy of errors. 😉
On the good news front, I was able to patch my cutting error and solve the facing problem. Instead of removing the facing, I just topstitched it down. And I used fusible knit interfacing to patch the cut. Here’s a blurry picture of the patch and topstitching for your viewing headache.
Anyway, tonight is another night. Let’s see what miracles I can pull out of my butt tonight.
Happy idiot-free sewing to you all.
