Hello Readers. I thought this dress was such a pretty dress for spring. The blue, the flowers, it was all great. But...
It was too small! It was too tight! I couldn't zip it. When I had someone else help me zip it, I couldn't breathe! I don't know about you but breathing isn't optional for me. This dress wasn't going to work.
I decided to remove the top and make a new waistband. It should have been so simple, but it was one disaster after another.
I tried to keep the zipper but accidentally cut it. I decided to use just the bottom of the skirt, below the zipper and add and elastic waistband. I started having trouble with my sewing machine. Why were my stitches so loose? Why won't my tension dial do anything to fix this? Why did I break 4 needles on this simple knit fabric? Why, why, why?
I fought with my sewing machine and made an elastic waistband. I liked this skirt but I will have to go over the sewing I did a second time when my machine comes back from the repair shop.
Thanks for reading along, now go make something fun for yourself.
