I am reading Don Quixote (I have been reading it on and off for a couple of years now...that sucker is long). It has a title for each chapter, of which there are many, and that (the post title up there) is the name of one of the chapters. Best chapter name ever.
Now, on to the business at hand: I made something. I know. You can hardly believe it. You thought perhaps I would never manage to make anything ever again. Well, ha! You were wrong!
This dress is based on the dirndl dress pattern in Built By Wendy Dresses. I am happy with the cut/fit of the dress, and I am pretty happy with the basic look of it. But last night, as I finished the neck facing and the hemming of the sleeves, I wanted to murder my sewing machine. Things were going not so well. So it is finished, but I am not at all pleased with last night's work. Those parts are a bit of a mess (as is a bit of the ribbon stitching, to be honest), though Adam assures me I am the only one who will notice. That'd be nice.
I had a whiney paragraph here about my dissatisfaction with my sewing skills, but I reread it just now and it was annoying and ridiculous, so DELETE. I just need to be more patient, pay more attention to the details, and get back on the horse. Ready, set, GO!
