The lining has been cut out and I’m starting to sew it together but the fabric seems to have distorted a bit and this is making me want to give up entirely. I had a plan to wear my dress to a Melbourne Cup luncheon with some friends and the date is drawing near (6 November… that’s 3.5 weeks!) I should be able to handle that. For goodness sake, you’d think I only just started sewing a few months ago. In fact, I know beginner sewists who are pumping out more completed projects than I’m managing, and I don’t even have a full-time job! No excuses! Hit the sewing machine, Carola!
Oh, and for the record, I ended up restitching the zipper with waxed pink thread and I’m really pleased I redid it. It’s hardly noticeable now and looks much better. :)
