For awhile there I was wondering how embarrassing it would be to not finish an outfit for an outfit-along that I was cohosting because I kept making plans to start my dress and then life would happen and I’d have to put things off. This weekend I actually got sewing, and things went really well.
I finished the bodice, which is really the most complicated bit of this dress. Unfortunately I ran out of thread at that point, but I ran out and got more on Sunday before I went and did family stuff. When I got home, I started to think about how I could finish my dress and get to bed on time that night if I left out the pockets and if I skipped this or that. I was really excited to get the dress done, but I realized I was too tired to do it properly if I was already thinking of corners to cut, so I ended up putting everything away. Getting the bodice done was good enough for one weekend because I still have next weekend to finish the dress and do it right.
P.S. I have a guest post on Rock + Purl for designers on what to blog about when you can’t blog about what you’re currently working on. Check it out!
