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.

  1. Oh, the dress is very, very nice, although it is not of your liking, it's simply a reminder of your beloved car firmness and commitment to move forward despite the problems. That's a wonderful job.
