The dress that almost wasn't!
I was inspired last week when I saw someone post a dress that I was planning on making. I thought I'd tackle that dress, since I already had a fabric that I thought would be perfect and I couldn't wait to see what my version of that same dress would look like. I can honestly say I've never been more frustrated, I almost threw it in the fire, not once but twice!! At one point I gave up on it and just tried to relax with a bottle of wine. I did manage to finish the dress a couple headaches later. The collar gave me more trouble than anything, or so I thought until I got to the zipper, invisible zipper I might add, because I thought it would be a good touch, I had never put in an invisible zipper, and I don't know if I'll ever do it again. In fact I don't know if I'll ever make this dress again, I don't know if it's worth the headache. I am proud of myself for not throwing it in the fire and actually finishing it, I'm still debating on the look though, I just don't think its my style, who knows, maybe it'll grow on me.
