I was so proud that I wrapped this dress up in almost one day. You may remember I took a day off work this month and hoped to run through a short list of small things. Instead I tackled on big thing: finishing this dress! I was almost done, all I had left was the buttons and the hemming. What happened?, you ask? Why didn't you finish?, you ponder. The sun must have gone down, dinner was ready, your sister-in-law called and asked if you wanted to watch one more episode of Rock of Love? No, friends, none of that. THIS is what happened:
Attack of the killer seam ripper! Right in the middle of the dress too, oh hell no! This is why I used my super dull seam ripper for so long, and lesson learned: this is the first dress I've used this new super sharp seam ripper on since. I need to take it easy.
I had sewn a button hole in, but the tension go all messed up and the thread on the underside of the stitches looked more like crazy muppet hair than a buttonhole. Little did I know how much worse it would get.
I did my best to patch it, you can't see it from afar (mostly thanks to the button), but I know...I know it's there.
