The Frankenstein dress is taking a toll on my nerves.
All you garment sewers out there, you have my respect. The beautiful, shiny, multi-weight fabrics that make up clothing are tricky-tricky.
Truly, last night I felt I was trying to stitch slime (the shiny fabric) to cobwebs (the lace). I prewashed. I measured (many times). Sparkle Jane tried on bits and pieces (several times). Please, let it fit!
The “will it fit” question is a big reason I often remodel rather than build from scratch. I am sure in some way this process is good for me….
